About Borden’s Pond

Borden’s Pond includes 1.6 miles of forested trails and a small wetland meadow. The site is home to varied wildlife and forests, sloping streamside trails, and Catskill Mountain views. There is not, however, a pond! When the dam that created the pond breached in 2006, the stream has since returned to its natural course, and part of the site is now a wetland. Hunting is not allowed at Borden’s Pond.
