First, there is a level walk on a marked trail to Good Luck Lake. A small backtrack to an unmarked trail leads up a short steep climb, then an open ledge with fantastic views.

Getting there

From Piseco, take NY 10 about 11.6 miles south from the junction of NY 8 to the trailhead.


The Good Luck Lake Trail is an easy 0.5 miles to the shore. The route to the cliffs is 3.6 miles from parking to cliffs and back. Once at the beginning of the cliffs trail, there will be some blue "foot trail" markers through the final, steep, climb to the open ledge area.

  • Distance: 3.6 miles, round trip
  • Elevation gain: 900 feet


The first stretch leads to a secluded sandy beach on Good Luck Lake.


The lake trail provides access to several designated campsites.
