Well marked. Started in a sprinkle, then returned in steady rain, some areas muddied up, but not bad. Wish I brought poles, bacon, and paddles, 2 boats and fire pit at pond. Frying pan on tree. Could have had lunch! S-Health says 3.2 miles total.

great easy trail and easy hike with a brook to cool off in at the halfway point. we lucked out going on a Wednesday and were the only ones on the trail all day. it was a little hard to find and the only marker was a sign for the campsite. coming down river road pass the large turnaround for the tube busses and go a couple hundred yards past this to the nexr pull off on the right . there will be a small sign that says #6 parking . this is the trail head. the first part is straight up a hill on a washed out jeep road and the most strenuous part of the whole trail the rest is a slow incline next to the brook, bring a swim suit if you like.

Well-marked and maintained trail with a steady uphill climb to just short of the pond before a decline to the water, but my gps app tracked it as just over 3 miles out and back. Lightly trafficked, pond is reputed to be a good brook trout pond,

This was so much fun to do with our family! I gave it only 3 stars for two reasons. One, it was almost a half hour before we could find the actual trail. We parked near the local tubing drop off/pick up site is and then there are many campsites and what look like hangout spots. There is a small gravel road back to more parking, which leads to some camping spots and then the trail back. Look for that dirt/gravel road back to find the trail. Secondly, the trail in was gross. Trash everywhere, piles of old dog bags near picnic tables, clearly not maintained. It was also clear it was a party spot, which I am always nervous to bring children to. Once at the slide it was awesome. We had hours of fun, spots were like mini pools where the kids could play and swim, just a neat spot. People had brought tubes and were sliding down parts of it. I would recommend but just be prepared, wish people would take care of the world a little better.

This was my first time on this trail. I was scouting it to see how much trail work needs to be done. I belong to a local group of volunteers, called the Siamese Ponds Trail Improvement Society, who maintain this and 23 other trails in the Gore Mountain region. The trail does need some work, which is scheduled for Monday. After that, it should be in good shape. There will still be a stream to ford at the beginning of the trail.

The pond is beautiful and peaceful.

Nice hike! I hadn't been on this trail in seven years and it's in very good shape. The yellow disks were freshly placed and very frequent. There was a little blow down near the top of the hill, but it wasn't too bad. The pond was beautiful, just like I remembered.

Short trail that connects River Road to the upper unnamed jeep trail. It starts off with a big hill, but the rest of the trail isn't very steep. In the middle of the hike are the bear slides were you can slide down the rocks into the pool at the bottom. Can be busy on hot days.

One of the worst maintained trails I have ever been on. 90% of the trail is straight thru a creek bed, so plan on a wet muddy hike. Trees down across the trail everywhere. Although the end destination was beautiful, I won't be making this trip again.
