New York’s Lincoln Pond Road (County Rd 7C) is an easy and beautiful 16 miles over the mountains between Elizabethtown on Rte 9 and Port Henry on Rte 9N. It’s a winding, two-lane blacktop road in good repair with few houses and plenty of forest that breaks into full bloom each October.
The route crosses a small causeway on Lincoln Pond.
The Lincoln Pond State Campground (open Memorial Day to Labor Day) is on a secluded section of the Pond and offers 35 tent and trailer sites with water and a dump station. The campground has a beach, hot showers and boats for rental. (http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/24477.html)
