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).

Good nature trail. More grass areas than expected. Will be a good trail for fall foliage. Pond view is nice.

Short easy loop, but not much to see. Many views obscured by tall grass, weeds, and trees. Also lots of bugs when I was there in the summer.

Short hike but lots of side trails if you wanted to wander around. Mostly wooded and a few nice views of lake and pond.

Nice trail - mostly wooded so good for hot days. Lots of small up and down hills but nothing too big.

Was nice. There was no sign at head of trail saying no dogs, but 3/4 around we find a sign. What? To late at this point, kept walking. Park rules say dogs on leash allowed. Was very wet when we walked.

A bit of a challenge in some spots but a nice hike. Many deer sightings along the way today.
