Nice hike on the trail around Beaver Pond, as you always have views, are walking through the woods, with bench or rocks to catch a picnic with a view, and have opportunities to vary your trip a little and trade closer shore paths with those that go in the woods. A fair amount of this part of the overall trail is marked with yellow blazers and by watching the indentation on the ground, you can easily find the trail. The other part of the trail from the parking lot to the beginning of the loop to Beaver Pond trail isn’t so interesting, really not marked, and is effectively a snowmobile trail. All Trails helped ensure we found the right paths (as signs at gate really didn’t match All Trails and instead used a trail numbering system). The parking lot (really a place there was no grass for 3-4 vehicles) wasn’t marked and was at the end of a road with houses nearby. When we left at noon there were no other cars but ours in the lot (kind of felt we might have been at the wrong place initially). When we returned around 4:30pm, there were 4 others. The All Trails app helped confirmed we were at the right gate. Suggest hiking poles, as over the entire trail you’ll encounter many tree roots, lots of rocks, and lots of slippery leaves (dry and wet). There are also 3-4 portable bathrooms near the campground that were open in Nov, with many more locked and would, be available during the summer camping season. We didn’t encounter many others, 3 sets of people with dogs and 1 biker was all. All social distanced, no bugs, no mud (early Nov). Would imagine during the summer when the State Park is open, you could start at the campground and do the loop around Beaver Pond to get a “best of” hike in about ½ the distance. Guessing at that time that trail would be way more crowded as there were roughly 100 campsites in that area (looked like a nice facility with beach, playground, showers, ball field, picnic tables and firepits at all the sites, group water, very few had electricity). There do seem to be other ponds in the area that might be accessible when the park itself is open for the season. Might be worth a visit back in summer, maybe along with a few nights camping.

HikingGreat!Rocky

I enjoyed the whole trip. Fall is a great time of year to hike. Because I downloaded the map, I was able to stay on trail. But because it cross crosses, you need to know when you are changing trails. The trails do have name markers in most places, but there were a couple have hairy places not marked. I did the original trail backwards. I'm glad I did because I would like to be going gradually upwards. The end was a little rough because of the steepness at the end, but i loved it.

A lot of hunters. Make sure you wear you orange! Our dog loved it. I’d go up hall mountain first, so take a left when the trail splits. Nice hike overall

Great!

I’d rate this trail low moderate or easy. It’s a beautiful trail. More mountain bikers than hikers. Park entry is $4 per person. There are port-a-potty toilets in the parking lot. We had an easy hike with our dog.

Such a great area with so many trails to do! Plenty of parking (must pay $4 at the gate). Only bumped into people on mountain bikes. They were very respectful of going slow around dogs. Great trails for the pups.

Really fun! Had some tough parts but was mostly moderate. Lots of water views and great during fall foliage!

HikingFeeOff trail

Narrow trails busy with mountain bikers flying through (one rude biker almost ran into my dog and gave little to no verbal warning), also some parts of the trail got moderate/advanced with the winding portions. Easy to feel lost at some points as trail is not super well marked. Beginning with big bear trail was nice, wish it stayed similar for the rest

Well...it's a snowmobile trail, wide and clear, but the surface is rocky/ bumpy. Gets to be tough on your feet. Some pretty views. Takes longer than 1 hour 45 minutes. Closer to 2.5 if you're walking like a normal person. No steep hills. Very quiet.

Great trail, but not well marked. Summit a bit disapointing, but Bear Pond made up for it.
