So long as you don’t mix up the trails...it is a nice scenic hike. We, however, entered at the “end” of the trail which was the mattabassett trail and ended up staying on that one as opposed to the pond trail. Our 1.5 mike hike turned into a four mile one...with our three kids rock climbing in parts. We ended up coming out onto a service road, hopping the fence and then walking along roadway to get back to trailhead.

We did way more than the 1.4 mile loop. Took the yellow blue trail out to the end. Was on a service road for a bit. Then took the blue trail around and back. There were steeps, rocky terrain , cliffs and boulders. But mostly a nice hike for intermediate hikers. Although I would recommend boots and not sneakers. But definitely doable.
We did 4.24 miles after working a 9 hour day. I was a bit tired to say the least after all was said and done.
