Rented bike just down the road from Cloudspitter and did the trail. Was beautiful and the free canoeing once you get there was a nice bonus.

great hike and even better bike ride. if your in the area it's a must, and if you're tired try walking the 1.5 RT to the farm complex as it will inspire you to return for the full adventure. note if you bring an overnight backpack there are ~8 camp sites around the Newcomb lake and a lean-to another ~1 mile up trail. I habe camped up here and it is very pleasant! However, do not hike the moose pond trail without map, compas, and extra food and water!! it is underused and undermaintained, with and older trail marked that is no longer used. I foolishly left my map at home and only had my compass, causing some concerning moments. it's also a very wet hike, but quite rewarding if it is completed.

We rode our mountain bikes to the lodge and had a picnic lunch. Challenging ride for our 11 year old son with the few long hills, but we made it OK with enough rest stops. Overall a beautiful trail. Just before leaving to come out, we noticed there were canoes in the boathouse for public use. If you have time, it looks to be a nice lake for a paddle.

Gentle, good distant hike, filled with breath taking deep woods. The treasure of a great camp as the reward, splendid views of Adk mountains.... loons to boot! Great day!

we did this trail back in 07 and the ease of this "driveway" is great for all, If you don't feel like walking you can bike it or for a more rustic trip they have a shuttle service via horse and cart. We went through to Ward Pond Brook LT and loved it.

This is a well maintained road that ends at the great camp being restored. You can spend the whole day exploring the area and have a picnic on the front porch. Some sandy spots to wet your toes in the stream on the way out.
