Wolf Pond & Deer Creek Falls(Adirondacks)

After exploring some of the Boreas Pond Tract, my dad and I drove a little further west along Blue Ridge Road and stopped for a moment to check out the Balancing Rock.  An incredible act by mother nature.
After enjoying Balancing Rock for a bit, we continued west to a large pull off near Boreas River.  A formal trail to Wolf Pond is in the phases of being flagged and built by the DEC from the Boreas River campsite on Blue Ridge Road.  For now, the only way to access Wolf Pond is by bushwhack.  A short, easy bushwhack leads to Wolf Pond Brook which we followed north.

We followed the east shore of Wolf Pond, where there isn't a bad view to be found.

We eventually found our way to more flagging and a boat along the shore.
We relaxed on some rocks along the shore, before heading back.  Hiked a little over 2 miles RT.

After leaving Wolf Pond, we wanted to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy lunch before heading back home.  My dad knew of a nice spot along Deer Creek on 14th Road in Minerva. 
We followed a fisherman's path along the creek.
