We wanted to go around the entire pond, but stopped at the private property signs, as it was clearly marked "no trespassing ". We never found the cliffs or views mentioned in other reviews. The parking lot was full of trash, we picked up 2 bags worth.

I think most people do the full trail rather than the .7 mile up and back. The view from the top is pretty nice and is good when the foliage is turning. There is a decent disc golf course just up the road as well, so you can get both in in a day.

This review is not for the 0.7 mile there-and-back trail, but for the trail around the entire pond. Moderate to steep terrain when hiking around the pond. Would be a five star review but there was a lot of trash on the trail, and the markings were confusing. Maps on site only show a blue trail, and I called the CT Forest Park and Association to explain that the maps should show all the trails. Apparently, the trails are maintained by different organizations. Anyway, when hiking the trail from the parking lot north of Ross Pond, go right to the blue trail to go up the steep terrain and see the pond. Beautiful views. At the end of the pond, there are white trail markers and orange as well, to the best of my recollection. Follow these (sometimes hard to see) to hug the pond for a very flat walk back to the northernmost lot.

If you hike around the entire pond it's a pretty nice hike, especially seeing the water through the trees and through some openings. The actual cliff is beautiful during the fall.

It's a big druggy hangout it's where the local teens go to take drugs.
