This lake is on north of the town of Newcomb, with nice views of the Santanoni Range and Ermine Brook Slide. Because you have to park at the beginning of the road that leads to Camp Santanoni, the hike to Moose Pond is a long one! There are some designated primitive tent sites on Moose Pond that can allow you to extend your stay in this backcountry body of water.
