Great hike! Solid climb over lots and lots of rocks. Wear proper hiking shoes/boots, and bring water, though drinking from Roaring Brook was crisp and clean. Once at the pond, the view is stunning! Bugs were out of control last weekend, so make sure you have a face or head mesh. Now for the big one!!! You had better get in line to enter the park freaking early. Once the parking lot is full, they shut it down for the day!! We were staying at Kidney Pond, and was turned away Saturday because it was full. They do not care if you're staying in the park or not, unless you are staying at Roaring Brook. Overall, 5 stars no matter what!!
