Unmarked trail is difficult to follow and easy to get lost, however the pristine fresh water kettle ponds are secluded, tranquil, undeveloped, gorgeous, warm water, sandy entrances, and beg to be swam in!! Some ponds (larger ones) are cleaner than others, beware of snap turtles & earaches tho!!

This trail is practically non existent. Using gps we finally arrived between the two ponds only to find high water and we decided not to take boots and socks off to wade through. I do not recommend this trail.
