Loved the trail! We tried to follow the Beaver Pond Loop but seems that we took some side trails and meandered around a bit, which was fine since it's easy to find your way back to the parking lot on rte. 117. Also other friendly hikers to help if you lose the main trail. A downed tree forced us to hike up an incline to pick up the trail again to loop back. Not a problem for our group though. Nice day of being outdoors in nature with forest and waterways.

There were some fallen tees blocking a small section of the path, but you can climb over. Icy and flooded in places, so wear the right shoes!

This trail, and the surrounding area, holds a special place in my memory. My family lived in a couple different homes in Lincoln when I was a child, the last being at the end of Round Hill Road...a very short walk through the woods to the Twin Pond conservation area. I fondly remember spending lots of time exploring throughout this scenic location. It, of course, was particularly beautiful in the fall. We also liked to go for walks there after a nice snow had fallen. And it was an absolutely wonderful spot for birdwatching. I would love to get back there to experience it again as an adult!

Came to check this one out fairly late in the day, that the otherwise last people seen coming out were wearing mosquito netting over their hats was portentous. If you attempt to complete Beaver Pond as curated here, be sure to do a full tick check soon after, as the west side return is overgrown. Super cushy pine needle covered treadway with almost no rocks and few roots. The geotrack did not match the alltrails markings nor the actual found trail in places, and as others have noted there is at least one junction with multiple red blazes and not matching the app, so use your sense. You won't be out of sight of residences, but the woods are rich, and alternative routes appear worth exploring on a return visit, and a winter walk here would probably be perfect. If the issues above don't bother you then consider this is a 5 star.

It was buggy at some spots, but overall it was a great hike. Beautiful scenes and also very quiet if you want to maintain the social distancing during Covid19.

It really is a beautiful way with a lot of animals and nature to see and to explore. Albeit the way is very well displayed in the beginning, it unfortunately gets quite hard to find the right way getting closer to beaver Pond.

Cute path in between private properties. Some fun wood planks to cross and nice viewing spots for bird and chipmunks. One tree is down and requires you to climb over it. But over all the path was peaceful.

This was nice easy nature walk with small streams and ponds throughout. I must say that is was not well marked.. all markers were red which made it hard to know where to go. General reminder some paths are on private property so make sure you are mindful when walking. Saw some song birds,and there definitely some beavers because there were a few dams. There was a tree down that blocked one of the paths but it was easily maneuverable. Overall nice walk but I have been on better ones.

Nice walk in the woods. Space to park at the beginning. A little confusing in spots but not a big deal - Just more than one path marked with a red dot. Took the dog and she enjoyed it.

Too buggy to enjoy. You will need insect protection to complete this trail and enjoy it. Maybe I will come back later in the season.
