Long Pond Mountain is a 2530-foot mountain near Long Pond in the St. Regis Canoe Area. The only trail up it can be reached only by paddling two miles from the Long Pond put in (off of Floodwood Road) to the trail head at the other end of the pond. Views to the east and south are extensive.

Fourteen-acre Mountain Pond, at 1670 feet on the south side of Long Pond Mountain, is said to be one of the highest sources of the Saranac River, along with nearby Ledge Pond.

The mountain was owned by the Upper Saranac Lake Association until 1898, when New York State bought the land and added it to the Forest Preserve. 1
