Snowshoeing

Went snowshoeing on this trail this past weekend. There is no trail. Basically just walk around the pond. No cell service. I did not see any wildlife but its winter.... I'm going to hike it again in the summer but I'm guessing it's going to be a very wet and muddy hike based on all the little creeks I had to cross.

HikingOff trail

There is not a trailhead, park at the little parking area on New Hudson Road. From there there is a trail out to an outlook and that is the extent of that trail. Walk north on New Hudson Road until you reach the north shore of Hanging Bog. Wander into the hemlock forest and you can find a little path people have taken to walk around the water. Nothing is marked. Hanging Bog is not a true bog. There is a plaque at the parking area explaining it was man-made. It looks like a bog mat in the middle but it isn’t accessible on foot (without wading) so I am not sure what kind of wetland it actually is. No cell service at this site so don’t depend on using this app to find the trail. It is worth the trek around, not overly difficult and lots cool stuff to see.

This is a wonderful trail if you enjoy getting off the beaten path a bit. Not every trail needs to be a highway. The trail is only sporadically marked and lightly trafficked -- both big pluses. Lots of beautiful views across the marsh, interesting plant species and impressive hemlocks. The woods are open and you are going around the marsh so getting lost is impossible. There are a few wet spots. At the northeast corner you will interesect a much more heavily marked but unused DEC trail which heads off to the north. We followed it for a while and it is nice but we do not know where it goes. Enjoy!

First to Review

Ok, let's start with the good points. The views where nice. And that's it. Ok now the bad. The trail was not marked very well, if at all. Thank god, I used my phone and someone else had posted the way they went. A lot of it was trail blazing and bush whacking. Now it is not a full loop. You get to the end and you have to walk back the way you came. Or you can trail blaze, and bush whacking your way to the road. If the trail was marked better, and it was a full loop, this would be a nice trail.
