Mendon Ponds Park is the largest Monroe County Park with 2,500 acres of woodlands, ponds, wetlands and glacially created landforms. In 1969, it was named to the National Registry of Natural Landmarks due to its geologic history and presence of significant kames, eskers, and kettles. This distinct park offers six Lodges and seven Shelters, all available for rental. Mendon Ponds has many recreational areas; Sharon’s Sensory Garden, Wild Wings, Inc., a Youth Camping area, and a boat launch (non-motorized boats only).

This is our favorite Mendon Ponds hike. It's a little long for kids but with so much scenery and an opportunity to feed the birds out of your hands (without the crowds of the Bird Song Trail) we are able to get the kids into it. They also love the board walk that if slightly off of the trail. It is quite flat so it's not a difficult trail.

The best time to hike in this place is during Fall(October/November). Also, you can spot couple of deer. It takes roughly 2 hours to complete the trail.

Great trail with lots of varying terrain. We ran out of daylight or we would have finished it I would like to go back to complete the trail.
