This easy trail is excellent for all hiking skill levels and horseback riding. Beautiful scenery along riverside and the shore of a pond.

Getting there

From the intersection of Routes 28 and 30 in Indian Lake follow Route 30 toward Lake Pleasant. Continue for just under 0.5 miles to Big Brook Road. Follow here for just over 6-miles to the trailhead on the right at bridge. All that marks the trailhead is a blue disk on a tree.

Kunjamuk Trail extends 8.2 miles from the Long Pond Trail - 0.8 mile from the Cisco Brook trailhead - to the Big Brook Road trailhead. The trail passes Kunjamuk River and traverses the shore of Round Pond.

Cross-country skiing

This ski starts along a woods road which is heavily traveled by locals and accesses hunting camps located on International Paper property, but is open to the public for recreation. The road as a slight continual climb to it before the trail breaks off on the left to a foot trail. From here you will notice much less use and you may need to break trail. The pond will come in on the left with ample opportunities for vistas out over the ice. Chimney, Humphrey, Pine, and Bullhead Mountains can be seen from the shore.

Horseback riding

Horses can be ridden for 2.5 miles of the Kunjamuk Trail, from the trailhead to the western shore of Round Pond.
