This pond is tucked away in a remote part of the Schoharie County.  If you are looking for beauty and peace you found the right spot.  

The parking lot is located off of Rossman Hill Road down a short road (not listed on maps).  You will see a brown sign at the road however, to direct you.  

You will see the pond ahead on a small wheelchair accessible trail.  Also note the trail leading off either side.  This is the 2.1 mile loop start/finish.  You can choose whatever direction you would like to start.  

Starting along the East shore of the pond this section is also part of the 357 mile Long Path traveling from New Jersey to New York.  Once you reach the parking area at Morey Road Truck Trail the Long Path will continue across the road however you will turn following the trail around the pond.  Yet before you continue you may want to check out a 19th century cemetery.  Approximately 100 feet north of this parking area you will see the Rossman Hill Cemetery. 

After checking out the cemetery head back to the parking lot and continue your trek around the pond.  The terrain will vary from stone areas, footbridges, dirt etc..... but remains level. 

There is a nice area to sit relax and enjoy the wildlife near the shore of the pond.  

The pond itself offers some good fishing.  Relax on one of the newly constructed observation decks or launch a kayak or canoe.  

This really is a gem of an area tucked remotely away.
