Good Luck Lake

Good Luck Lake

How to Get There

From the intersection of Route 8 and Route 10 in Piseco, follow Route 10 toward Pine Lake. Continue for 12 miles to the launch on the left, where the outlet of the lake goes into the Sacandaga River.


Once on the water you will paddle upstream under Route 10. Continue upstream in the gentle waters and you will come out onto Good Luck Lake. The lake has nice rocky outcroppings and massive wetland areas on either side that are all worth exploring.

You have one other option to reach the lake, but that requires a 0.4-mile portage along the foot trail to the shore of the lake, which is about a quarter of a mile further north on Route 10.
