The main trail at Dividend Pond is a 2.5 mile loop around the pond and wetlands. Numerous mills and factories were located at the site dating back to the 1600s. Near the main parking area are some remaining foundations and a staircase bordering a scenic waterfall. The dam near the parking area features the remains of the old mills and factories that were once located here. As such, this is a protected archaeological site. Do not dig, remove anything, use metal detectors, etc. The north side of the white trail is wide and clear; the south side is wooded with a lot of tree roots and uneven, muddy terrain. It is about 2.5 miles long and loops around the pond and wetlands. There are nice, new benches on each end of the pond, by the dam and the bridge.

The trail is marked well and is easy for the kids. Like other people said in the reviews bring bug spray. The area by the ponds has a lot of bugs. But overall it's a beautiful and easy walk.

A lot of gentle slopes. Very clear and well-marked trails. A few places near the pond, streams and waterfall to stop for a minute and take in the view. Nothing super exciting, and a little buggy because of the water bodies, but a great, tranquil walk.
