Thompson Pond Trail is a 2.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Pine Plains, NY that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.

The yellow trail is a 2.5 mile loop. It is okay for the first and last mile but the south east section turns narrow and overgrown with some muddy parts, especially along the farm's barbed wire fence where the cows were congregated. I won't do it again.

Thompson Pond is a wildlife sanctuary maintained by The Nature Conservancy. People are encouraged to visit the area but DOGS are NOT welcome! It is an easy 2.7 miles that can be hiked in less than 2 hours. The trail is somewhat narrow on the east side but passable nevertheless. The pond is home to large numbers of waterfowl.
