Turkey Hill Pond is a 58 acre, man-made “pond” in the far-northern section of Harriman State Park, NY.

Many Harriman Hikers refer to this body of water simply as “Turkey Lake” and it has been both a destination and way point for many different hike routes Harriman Hikers have used over the years.

The view of the lake used on our website header features late Spring foliage and a view from the northeastern end of the pond looking south – the peak in the far distance is Summer Hill. Out of sight above and to the right of the photo is Torrey Memorial, where we had just come from to arrive at the location where this photo was made.

Other photos in this set depict lake and trail views as we hiked our way south around Turkey Lake’s eastern shore and then much later in the day after we came back to the lake on its southern end and hiked our way up Turkey Lake’s western side. From the west, looking east one can observe the actual Turkey Hill, for which the pond is named (and we hiked over 😉
