We hiked from the parking lot on Rt. 20 to Finerty Pond. It was a beautiful day. The climb from 20 was a little steep and the air was muggy but from Beckett Mt to the Pond it was perfect. Nice breeze and no bugs to speak of. Perfect trip. Lunch at the lake and then back to parking by 11:00. We didn't go to the north side of the lake but instead continued on the AT around the south side. Really fun.

my daughter and I with our 2 dogs made the hike and stayed overnight on the peak of the mountain, and had a great time!

We explored two different trails while we were here and had a lot of fun. The sights were beautiful and the wildlife was enchanting.

We found some signs as we were on the way to another area before a concert at Tanglewood and decided to go here rather than to the place we'd intended as this location was closer to Tanglewood. We started in a camping area on the southwestern area of the overall state forest. There were a few trails originating in the campground: the Loop Trail, the Ledge trail and the Tamarack trail. We took the Ledge Trail, which was about a 2 mile hike with about 800' elevation over the course of the trail - the steep section was a decline of 600'. It featured gorgeous rocks, streams, waterfalls, and a crossing in a falls area. We had a group of 4, with a couple inexperience hikers, one was 11. The trail is rated as moderate or difficult depending on where you look, and I would agree, though we didn't have any problems with it. Our biggest challenge was that it was very moist and slippery - lots of very wet moss on nearly every rock. But we loved it and had a lot of fun. Took about 2 hours to complete it.
