Still lots of ice, snow, and mud on the pond trail, but we found ways around the worst parts and had fun with a five-year-old and a seven-year-old. Will definitely go back when it’s warmer and dryer.

A nice easy trail that was simple to hike and very well marked. It was perfect for our 3 and 5 year old. They were able to do the whole loop. The trail was nicely kept up and we loved looked at the pond from the bridge. A perfect trail for a family hike with smaller children.
