Hey Folks, super fun hike!!! Great hike if your feeling like getting real deep into nature without leaving the comforts of town, just a little bit outside of Plymouth, three ponds allows you to hike up into an area unlike most in New Hampshire! Watch for beaver dams and moose! The full loop is recommended for the whole feel but 2.4 up to the largest of the lakes is and back is a great little hike!

Great loop for a quick trail run. Other reviewers stated that the trail can become difficult to follow after the shelter (going clockwise). I found this to be true on a couple instances but quickly realized I had gone off trail and had no difficulty finding it again. Bugs were a none issue but I that is most likely due to running the trail. While at the trailhead getting ready there were a lot of mosquitoes. Trail was overgrown in some places and there was a large blowdown towards the end of the first half of the trail. Trail is in need of maintenance and could use some re-blazing.

Quiet trail, beautiful views of the ponds and lots of moose poop. No moose sightings this time!

This was a wonderful trail, you go deep into the woods and get to hear the silence of the forest. This trail is not over hiked. We saw many reptiles, and frogs. Evidence of many other animals roam these trails. Beautiful wild flowers including 100’s of lady slippers.

Was a decent hike. Mostly wide open snowmobile trail. Hiked out to do some fishing. And they were still frozen over. Oh well had fun and the shelter was accommodating.

had to bushwhack part of the way as it did not seem to have been used that much on the 3rd of July.

Came here for a hike the day after some climbing. Some parts of the trail are indeed snowmobile paths, and were quite muddy. Not too much to see, pretty flat terrain, and the "ponds" were nothing special. You go by a stream for a bit of it, which was the pretties part.

Great climb with nice views. Rocky and slippery on the steepest part of the trail. We saw a barred owl and Magnolia Warbler on 6/13/15

This is a beautiful hike that's more like a walk through the woods. There are several trails so so make sure you follow the signs or you might end up on a snowmobile trail. The trail can be pretty muddy in a lot of places so wear the proper footwear.
