Nice afternoon hike with kids aged 7 and above. Beautiful views. Two tracks most of the way. Sneakers are fine if not raining.

Easy stroll through the woods that ends at a very lovely pond.

Beautiful, wide, easy trail. A few wet patches. Slight uphill all the way up,, which makes going down great. Nice landing at a pond. Be careful towards the end, as the arrow sign points you in the wrong direction. Follow the sign to the pond instead.

More of an old Road than a trail, this unmarked hike starts out next to Route 93 which is loud and irritating. Once it gets away from Route 93, it’s quite nice, although it is an old road and not a trail through the woods. The pond is beautiful and must be nice for the wildlife to have an undisturbed pond to go to. Could possibly be a good cross country ski site although it would be all uphill, and then all downhill. You’d have to go on a slow day for the downhill, otherwise it would get way too fast!

Very easy trail, well marked and wide. Would recommend for beginners. Roads a bit rough to get to the head but the views are worth it at the end.

Another very pleasant hike up to the pond. A little slick in some sections but overall not bad. I just had boots with no traction (spikes, etc) and did just fine but my girlfriend felt a little more comfortable with the spikes on the way back to the parking area. I love the silence of the pond when you get there. A very pleasant day.

Very icy glad I had my spikes with me for sure today. A simple short hike with beautiful pond at the end. Along snowmobile trail I imagine that it might be less relaxing in thick winter with the machines but today was beautiful. Parked at the end of road with plenty of room.

Very nice short hike. Very icy so bring your spikes. Sitting by the pond was perfect. Silent but for the sound of the ice cracking.

Trail is heavily trafficked by snowmobiles. The trail to the Pond is not well marked. Terrain is a gently sloping and wide.

Really easy hike with one at end. Pretty lake but not the most scenic hike. It’s great for a family friendly all skill level hike

Easy hike on wide trail. 45 easy minutes to the pond. Relaxing setting at the pond with a log firepit. Probably be a good hike in spring as it doesn't appear as though it would be muddy.

Easy walk in the woods to a pretty pond. I probably would have gone for a swim if I had planned better. It's not the best marked trail, but a little common sense will get you far. Breezy day so the bugs weren't bad, but this is NH - bring your favorite insect repellent. Only wish there was a trail that took you around the pond.
