Someone remarked the trail well, except the top where you leave Heald Rd...walk across lot and over fallen tree to avoid poison ivy path which is really the trail just afterward. Logging operation at top was a bummer and then happened upon pond completely covered with lilies. Keep going...it gets way better...beautiful pond views once you get past it. Path somewhat overgrown, watch for poison ivy throughout but you can avoid it.

Good Fishing spot. Fairly quiet, only saw one other group. Easy wander along the pond

According to the official trail sign at the parking area, there is quite a network of trails, and several loops to choose from, but as other reviewers have noted, they are poorly blazed and maintained. We couldn't figure out the loop either, and ended up backtracking to get out. Heald Road is a nice easy walk, and next time we'll try to follow it all the way to the next pond and trail system to see if that's any better.

Went in mid January with snowshoes but did not need them. Took the yellow trail around pond, but it was not a loop so backtracked. Lovely setting, quiet walk in the woods. Recommend for an easy afternoon in the fresh air.

Not the Heald Pond Trail, probably part of Heald Tract, does not go to the pond. It is a nice loop trail but it's poorly marked, difficult to navigate the loop due to multiple intersections. However it was very easy to follow using gps. Some sections are maintained very nicely but others are not maintained at all and are heavily overgrown.

First to Review

Beware!!! It is not really a loop! If you turn left instead of turning right at the Fisk Trail junction, you will be climbing quite a challenging steep hill and then would need to go all the way down to find your car, if you get lucky. You should follow the yellow trail if you want to get back to the Heald Road where you parked. If you take orange or blue trail, you will end up at Fisk hill. We got completely lost and Wilton police guys saved us. Without them, we would have been sleeping in the woods.
