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.

I've been two consecutive days from out of town.

short, sweet, pretty.

A bit on the buggy side due to the water.

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.

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! :)

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 :)

Pleasant, easy trail nestled within a commercial/residential area. Would consider it an out-and-back more than a loop as the White Trail loop continues on a paved residential road past the bridge. Take the Yellow Trail loop to get into the woods a bit more. It joins back up with White Trail for a nice trek
