Hiked this trail with a friend. I have it clocked at closer to 5.75 miles than 4.1 according to the Fitbit. Beautiful views of the water, plenty of places to stop for photos and walk out on the rocks. The Lost Pond Loop is very nice (we didn’t see an actual pond) and takes you deeper into the woods. Note, the second half of the Lost Pond Loop is overgrown, and single person only. Lots of sticky plants so be careful. Also note there are several steam crossings on this trail. Overall we still really enjoyed the trail. Hiked in autumn with beautiful changing leaves.

Was beautiful scenery, enjoyed it with friends

This is a nice trail for families if you cut it a bit short. I hike here with my 2yo daughter and she enjoys it. we hike out to the large rocks about a mile or so out and have lunch sitting on the rocks (they are on the right just past the trail split for lost pond loop) then we hike back. Its a good distance for her she just starts to get tired and wants to be picked up when we get back to the car. Lots of young adults use this trail most of the summer so it tends to get littered with beer bottles and trash, i take a couple bags and a day pack and try to clean up some as we hike. If everybody did we could keep this trail relatively clean.

I hiked 5 miles of this section and it was a breezy day. The Lost Pond trail follows the river for about 2 miles. Although this section is mainly flat it does become a bit rocky. Before you start heading up the ridge, the trail is very overgrown and inundated with invasive plants so beware of ticks and sticker bushes The trail is only one person wide so you may eat a lot of cob-webs if you are first on the trail. Once you go up top or if you hike the Sawmill trail you will feel like you are in heaven compared to down below. The area is well defined and all the trail are painted or there are signs with directions.

Pretty good trail. Dogs loved going in and out of the river. A bit crowded today.

Very nice trail for a leisurely hike and a cool dip in the river. The fishing for small bass and panfish is incredibly fun. The parking lot fills up fast as does some of the sandy areas of the river. There seems to be a problem with people leaving trash and adult beverage containers all around, especially on hot days. Please pack out what you bring. Too many people at the Pot Rocks in warm weather so I usually hike the Wildlands trail through the tunnel on the other side of the park. There are geocaches throughout the park. Enjoy.
