Taylor Pond Trail is one of five trails in the Fenton Ruby Park. It is well maintained and marked and has interesting variety of landscape and plants. There are the usual small wild life. A pleasant picnic area near the parking lot. Mostly covered by a light canopy. The trail has slight change in elevation sort of rolling, up and down. It offers little in the way of difficulties. There are several boardwalks over potential wet sections and has one sturdy bridge of interesting construction. Great for kids. A nice hike after a picnic.

Well maintained, very peaceful. Lots of little babbling brooks and foliage. A small river runs by a portion of the Julia's trail.
The 2 mile trail this post mentions is the Taylor Pond trail combined with Julia's Trail.

An easy trail with a light canopy and not much change in elevation, several small brooks crossed with well placed planks and one larger creek with a substantial bridge. Well maintained by locals. Several old stone walls. Pleasant picnic area at the trail head. There are three other trails in this park (Fenton Ruby Park).
