The Ice Pond Conservation Area is located in the northeastern corner of Putnam County, in the Town of Patterson, about 4 miles (6.3 km) west of the Connecticut/New York State border and about 4.7 miles (7.6 km) south of the Dutchess/Putnam County border. The area is 370 acres (150 hectares) and includes all or portions of the Ice Pond Preserve, the Twin Hill Preserve and the William Clough Preserve (together referred to as the Ice Pond Conservation Area). Historically, the site is best known for the extensive ice harvesting operation which took place there throughout the early 20th Century. Remains of stone walls traverse most of the site, except the steepest slopes.
