McKenzie Pond Road starts as a continuation of Pine Street just south of its intersection with Payeville Road, and runs two and a half miles to an intersection with NY 86 at Ray Brook.

McKenzie Pond Road is a segment of the Northwest Bay Road/Old Military Road, the first road into Saranac Lake, which comes originally from Northwest Bay (today's Westport), through Elizabethtown, North Elba and Ray Brook in the east southeast and turns right around Mt. Pisgah, and travels north through Harrietstown to end at Hopkinton in St. Lawrence County. The route is the earliest trace of the built environment here which survives, preceding the earliest graves in the Moody family burial ground, now Pine Ridge Cemetery.

Before Lake Flower Avenue (previously known as Rat Street) was constructed, McKenzie Pond Road was the only road from Ray Brook, the road on which the earliest settlers arrived, and near which they settled.
