Great Pond Loop to Outer Loop to Long Pond Loop

The description of this hike should include that there is an Outer Loop as well that is what is mapped here. We were a little pressed for time as this was our 3rd hike of the day and the rain was coming upon us, so we skipped the Outer Loop section and took the more direct route. There was some nice views on a very steep overlook that looked at Long Pond and Great Pond I think. We even saw a few Bald Eagles which was cool. Not doing the Outer Loop the hike ended up being maybe 1.8 miles but still a decent hike.

Nice easy loop trail—basically a long walk in the woods. Not very steep. The Long Pond loop has a nice close overlook of the pond, but otherwise there is not much in the way of views on this hike.

This views are not spectacular but it’s a very pleasant hike through the snow if you simply need to be out in nature during the winter. Approximately 2/3 of the trail is groomed by snowmobiles, which makes for easy passage. However, the remaining sections are not packed down and you will need to trudge through knee-high snow, which makes for a fun adventure in its own way.

Grew up on this road and love The Mountain for an easy and scenic hike.
