Harriman Hikers spends a significant amount of time in the Summer hiking to and at Island Pond in Harriman State Park, NY. The photo below is from the south end of the “pond” near Island Pond Road.

The name “Island Pond” sometimes seems both appropriate and inappropriate – the island in the “pond” is descriptive enough, however, it often seems like a mighty big pond, no?

Unlike many of the lakes and reservoirs in Harriman State Park, Island Pond is a naturally made, glacially formed body of water. It’s also one of Harriman State Park’s deepest bodies of water, about 100ft at its deepest point.
