The trailhead is located on the NE side of Moody Pond. Starting on Rt 3 in Saranac Lake, driving toward Lake Placid, continue straight onto Brandy Brook Lane at the unconventional intersection near the NBT Bank. Cross the railroad tracks and turn left onto Pine St. After crossing the railroad tracks again turn right on Forest Hill Ave. Continue down Forest Hill Ave to Moody Pond and park on the far side near the trailhead.
Near the beginning, the trail splits and the main hiking trail(red markers) goes to the summit. The trail to get to the cliffs continues straight. Follow the trail for about 10 minutes to a small herd path(marked with a small cairn) on the left just past a marshy area.
Follow the herd path on the left for a couple minutes to reach the base of the cliff.
Follow it to the right to reach the top.
The trails are now faint so keep an eye on your watch to avoid overshooting the turn off or check the updated location on the map and new access trail added to this area for ease of use. Cell service is spotty but works with AT&T.
