Nice loop around the pond with some rocky areas. Please note: the road leading to the trailhead may close seasonally. Visitors must park at the gate - this adds ~3 miles round-trip to the hike.

This was an absolutely beautiful trail! The trail could be a little difficult at times having a lot of roots one would need to navigate and some points of steep rocks you would need to trek over but is otherwise very defined and labeled trail, highly recommend for a nice afternoon hike and maybe even a nice picnic with a ton of nice Little Rock face areas to eat!

Outstanding first time hike for my 15 year old and I. Rocky, rooty and a little muddy from the rain last night. Heavily trafficked, very well marked trail with a little water fall and lots of great spots along the pond to stop for a snack. Clean Porta-potties at the main parking lot a plus.

My husband and I really enjoyed this! Unfortunately the mosquitos were full force since it’s been warm and you’re along the water for the whole hike. And we determined it would be fun for our 5 year old nephew, but too tough for the younger ones due to all the rocks! But very interesting landscape and fun trail overall.

Great hike. As of February 2020 the access road down to the trail head is still closed. You have to park a ways out. The walk down is pretty boring, but if you can deal with it, the hike is great. Good mix of areas that are more challenging with stretches of easy hiking.

There is a little bit of everything on this trail, rock scrambles, water features, caves (if you can find them) etc. I was pleasantly surprised and my two dogs had a great time! Only saw two people the entire time we were out. I will be back to explore more of the area and the blue blazed trails. Go!

This is a nice hike any time of year. There are nice stands of mature Hemlocks and Pines to the south of the pond. Beware, it can get wet and streams difficult to cross when it rains. It is also rocky in sections and a bit precarious with leaf cover.

Did trail counter clockwise. Like a whole new different trail and more difficult and longer.

Warning... would advise a trekking pole. Leaves are all down, covering the trail. Very slippery spots. Great hike on a beautiful day!

Good trail. Not long or hard, but pretty rocky in some spots. I'd rate it more of a moderate trail for that reason.

Great trail for my dog and I. It took us an hour to complete with stops. If we did not stop I’d say it would have taken us 45 minutes. I would say this trail is family friendly, and with kids walking I’d say it would likely take 1.5 hours. I would recommend packing a picnic to enjoy at the picnic table near the swimming area.
