Some tight spots out there. But some great places to run too. Did Cliff, Little Cliff, Flax, and Higgins.

A great hike with great views. Hiking sandals would be a best choice as the trail is muddy and washed out in some areas.

A fun hike if you commit to getting your feet wet. But with that said, a nice way to see a glacial kettle pond and a few glacial erratics (boulders)

Nice trail along the shore but was underwater in long stretches. Bring a towel so you can swim at the halfway mark. Hiking sandals would be the best footwear. Trail could use some brush cut back as it is overgrown in spots.

Little Cliff Pond has a much better trail than Big Cliff Pond so staying on the smaller loop to keep dry land and high ground is a must.

I fell in love with the Nickerson Park on my July 2018 trip. This trail is deep into the park. I walked halfway through the trail by the pond before I layer down on the sandy “beach” and went for a swim. There were a lot of sections where the water was high and my shoes got wer/muddy. On my way out of the park I got lost but it was fun.

A few spots where the trail is under water as it is so close to the pond.

Nice trail, but the high water level rendered a good part of the trail pretty hard

Sections of the trail on the Cliff Pond side along the beach were totally under water, making it rough for our kids; but the rest was a beautiful hike, full of pine trees and quiet beaches. I’d definitely do it again, but check the conditions on the Cliff Pond side of the loop first so you can decide whether or not to turn back at the halfway point. It’s easy to scope it out from the parking lot in five minutes or less.
