Floodwood Loop Hike

Staying low and local, I visited the Floodwood Loop last week and had the loop to myself. The area is better known among paddler, just south of the St Regis Canoe Area. But when the bugs are still sleeping, its a pleasant 9 mile loop to more than a half dozen ponds.
For the full trip report and all the photos, visit the link below to my website.

Nice photos. I snowshoed this same loop back in April of 2011. Even then, the bridge over the outlet of Horseshoe Pond was in pretty rough shape. The area gets decent amounts of paddling use but these trails don't seem to get much hiker traffic- and you're right in that they very pleasant for the most part. It's a moderately challenging day hike but could also make for an easy, beginner-level backpacking trip.

I also remember camping in one of the designated tent sites near the outlet of Floodwood Pond one February night for my Intro to Winter Recreation class at Paul Smith's College.

The tent sites were nice and you’re right that they’d make a great easy or intro backpacking trip. I paddled/fished Follensby and Horseshoe a couple Saturdays ago and there was a lot of people at the designated sites and lots of paddlers and fisherman.

Are those loons or geese in that one photo?

Those are geese. I saw loons on Middle Pond but they dove before I could take a pic and resurfaced you fat away
