Great glacial pond, lots of wildlife, well maintained trail system This hike is a moderate climb to Sunfish Pond, following the Appalachian Trail heading north. The trail is well maintained and well used by dayhikers and overniters alike. The hike has a few strenuous climbs, but mostly evenly graded climbs with a few level areas in between. I followed the Dunnfield Hollow Trail down from Sunfish Pond to make it a loop. This trail does have some rather steep sections, and I probably wouldnt suggest it as an uphill route if I had a fully loaded pack.

Great workout, cute pond. Moderately trafficked with hikers and friendly dogs. Lots of rocks and several stream crossings. Went on an unseasonably warm day in February but even with snow/ melting ice the hike was enjoyable. Plenty of parking. Kid and dog friendly, but not a hike for beginners.
