This was a good hike. Lots of up hills. It was just over 7 miles, so I don't know where the 5.4 mile statement came from. A little off the regular path there is a beautiful cascading waterfall. It is small, but still very pretty. The trail is clearly marked and is easy to follow. Will be pretty in a few weeks with the changing of the leaves.

Well marked trail. Short inclines. I did the loop, parking at Salmon River State Forest (next to day pond state park). Nice trail. Next time I'll find the covered bridge to complete the whole trail. Overall, I did 3 miles of it (the loop).

I started at the Comstock covered bridge and hiked to the Day Pond Loop. I completed the south loop and then the north loop, stopping for a water break at the Day Pond State Park between the two. Very beautiful spot and midway point. I also took a short trail off of the north loop which led to the Day Pond Falls, a very beautiful waterfall worth the half mile hike down and back to the loop trail. It is important to rate the entire seven mile hike as hard. Completing sections can be considered moderate depending on length. The hike took my dog and I three hours with almost no stopping. The majority of the trail is tree covered and you are only in direct sun when crossing the power lines briefly on the north loop. Well marked with blue blaze. The beginning of the trail by the Comstock covered bridge goes along the Salmon Ride before climbing up to a view of the river and then turning away from the river to head towards Day Pond. Plenty of parking at both the Comstock bridge and Day Pond state park. The Comstock bridge has beautiful wooden gates that make for a lovely photo silhouette. Overall an awesome workout!

Did this walk pushing a stroller. A bit overgrown and there were a couple dozen hanging caterpillars. You could hear the caterpillars eating away the leaves. Sounded like light rain. Uphill almost all the way out. Several different off shoots to different trails that you can explore on future visits.

Not really what I expected. This trail seemed more like a path state vehicles used to access nearby land.. Also ran in to ticks and mosquitos pretty heavy.
