Trail is slightly uphill to the pond. But the pond at the end is very pretty, a nice place to relax. Mostly used by fishermen since at the end there was a tied up boat and some old campfires used to cook fish. Someone left their fish griller behind for others to use. Quick and easy, I would do it again.

This trail was a pleasant surprise. It was relatively flat with no incline. It's also wide enough to allow an ATV to go through, and there are signs saying so. The pond at the end was beautiful, well worth the quick hike. You also pass by a nice little stream on the way there. I definitely recommend this as an easy trail for children and the elderly.

We decided to stop in here during an outing of trail walking. This trail is truly nothing spectacular. A lot of it seems overgrown. The pond at the trail head (Courtney Pond) is beautiful; lots of frogs and blooming lilly pads to see. Shingletree Pond (at end of walk through culvert) is small and similar. This location is the end of the hike, unless you plan to wander through the Dix on your own with a map/compass.

Stayed two nights at the Sharp Bridge Campground and had to stop on the way out to check out this little hike. Trail is lightly used so some parts are a bit overgrown and noise from the northway can be heard. However I did enjoy my short morning hike through here...culvert was fun!!

Beautiful scenery- a variety of flowers and vegetation. A nice, quick walk through the woods.

An easy trail for little ones. Small stocked pond at the end with a camping site. The trail isn't as well-maintained as others.

This was a level, easy-to-follow trail that was a great introduction to hiking for our 4 year old. There are two campsites at the end of the trail near Hammond Pond. A creek runs along the trail.

Nice easy trail with cute views of Lake Champlain.

We started out at the camp ground. There really is no direction, and Clap isn't even listed on the trail head. We opened the sign in register to look for a map, inside the the register was ripped to shreds and turned into a mice nest. They started jumping out of the top of the box! We closed the register and started on our way. There ARE trail markers for the trails listed. Like I said, nothing about Clap. We walked about a mile and turned around and saw a small faint trail and followed that. It DID bring us to Clap Mtn. Cliffs. That is a nice place to take a seat and have a drink. We checked that out for a few, then looked for ANY trace of a trail we could find to continue on, and there was NOTHING. We went a ways into the woods to try to make our way to summit. Definitely need to clear a path for yourself! We ended up turning back and leaving when we heard gun shots a couple times. Pretty place, and a decent little adventure, but I don't think we will go back.

Nice quick trail that takes you around Courtney Pond & through a Northway Underpass to Shingletree. Parts of the trail border wooded private property. You get to see some nice wildlife. A good trail for fisherman. You'll also hear the noise from the Northway.

Trail starts at Sharp Bridge Campground. Cross one footbridge and take the trail on the left. It leads you to the Sharp Bridge Cliffs (part of Clap mountain). The cliffs are a very nice place to relax. To summit Clap mountain you have to bushwhack. You can see the Summit from the Sharp Bridge cliffs by turning and looking to your left. Work your way through the pines and birches. The ascent to the Summit is pretty easy.
