Followed the blue trail uphill for a distance east until meeting back up with the yellow trail, which leads another .3 miles back down to the trailhead. Hiked about 6.2 miles RT on a beautiful early February day. Didn't see another person the entire time I was out.

Pole Hill Pond(Lake George Region-Adirondacks)
Was greeted by bright blue skies as I headed to Pole Hill Pond, part of the 1300 acre Northwest Bay tract along the western shores of Lake George near Bolton Landing today. To find the preserve, take exit 24 off the Northway and head east on County Route 11 for 4 miles to Route 9N. Turn left onto 9N and follow it north for 2.8 miles to a small, unmarked parking area along the left side of the road, diagonally across from a driveway with stone lions. After parking, I passed an upper parking area to the right on foot until I arrived at a blue marked trail and trail info. I put on my micro spikes to help with the icy areas.
