Beautiful, peaceful short hike. The pond is absolutely serene, and mountains as a backdrop made for excellent scenery. Half way up the trail, I was treated to see a kingfisher pluck a trout (I assume) out of the stream. At the pond there is a huge beaver dam and I would assume if one was quiet in early a.m or eve, you would have a good chance of seeing a moose. Definitely coming back in a week or two to see the peak colors of fall!

I wouldn't call this the simplest trail due to the uneven rock climbing, but the pond is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I saw a beaver happily swimming along in the pond.

Went on this trail on an overnight with my school. Hiked this trail on the second day when it was raining. Very peaceful when I got to Lost Pond. Had lunch on a flat rock, and the trail was easy to me. I hiked up Glenn Boulder the day before, and it tired me and my legs out. This trail on the other hand was a very easy trail, minimal large slopes, extremely easy to hike even with a large pack on, and is also a great view in the rain.

This trail starts directly across Rt 16 from the Pinkham Notch Visitors Center and is used to get to the Wildcat Ridge Trail (AT). It is an easy and flat half mile that is much more interesting than walking the highway. Nice views of the Ellis River and Lost Pond along the way.
