Gero Pond runs alongside Ensign Pond Road for almost its entire length, but this hiking path is the only way to actually see the pond, as the shoreline is heavily wooded.

How to get there

From Exit 29 off of Interstate 87, follow Blue Ridge Road toward North Hudson, take a left onto state Route 9 and follow it north. Continue for 2.5 miles and turn right onto Caza Turn Road, then take the next right onto Ensign Pond Road. Keep watch on the right on Ensign Pond Road, as 0.3 miles down there is a small historic cemetery with a parking area.

This is a short, flat, and easy trail except for a three foot drop at the entrance to the dam. Care, especially with small children, can easily be taken. The dam itself is a scenic structure made of quarried stones.
