I just went out to take this hike, and the map was extremely inaccurate. The portions of the trail that skirt the northeast and west shores of Williams Pond and Higgins Pond simply do not exist.

There is also no publicly accessible trail making the last leg of the walk - the part that most closely parallels the beach. I trespassed my way down to the each and got back to the Newcomb parking lot that way.

The dirt roads around all these ponds are very nice for walking, but you might as well pick your own route from Google Maps.

Much of the “trail” is a maze of dirt roads leading to private homes. Inaccurate trail map.

This is an easy trail - easy to follow. Has some wooded areas, and beautiful water views.
