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).

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

Good trail, well marked with some nice meadow views. Occasionally you walk near the road but that's only for a few hundred yards. The trails had some washout down the center but after all the rain we had in the spring it's to be expected. Bugs weren't bad and saw a bunch of people throughout.

One of my favorite local places to take my dog for a walk, have met lots of nice people along the trail. Some nice views, very simple trail, can't go wrong walking around Mendon Ponds, all trails are great
