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.
Great family hiking spot.
Buggy. Nice walk.
nice hike with the pup along the white and yellow trails for about 5 miles with very nice scenery inside the woods. beautiful view from over the bridge with benches to sit and take in the gorgeous parts of nature overlooking the pond, which was home to a cute little duck family :) [[panorama photo was uploaded of said view]] will most definitely come back in the fall when the trees along the pond are in full rainbow foliage! :)
Beautiful scenery. Will definitely be coming back again
Great trail. Beautiful views.
easy hike, short, pretty at the falls.
Nice easy walk. Good scenery. Wished it was longer and a little more intense
Nice fall walk, easy terrain. Brought or two small dogs, who managed it well. Waterfall and pond are especially pretty this time of year. We'd go back again :)
