BackpackingGreat!

Trail is in good condition. Muddy right at the start but after that its nice and dry. Recommend doing the hike up to the overlook (left side of pond) since the right side path is really just there to access the campsites.

Beautiful day- take the Brook trail just beyond the parking lot by the fishing sign—-no mud and very obvious...meets red trail near the top of the hill

Very pretty trail a little over 3 miles in and out the pond was nice definitely needed-micro spikes overall a beautiful trip. A little icy in spots and streams starting to flow

Great trail today; snowshoes optional; spikes not necessary; shortcut Brook trail best with snowshoes. No crowds; no one going toward Buck Mt on this trail.

A little muddy in spots but what a great quick hike. Saw some evidence of camping spots that were perfect down to rock “seats” around a fire pit. Also bushwhacked to Crossit.. found what I think might be an old silo on an old logging road? Anyone else see it? Curious as to it’s function.

We wanted an easier hike because we had our Maltese with us, and this trail was perfect! A nice hike through the woods on a well maintained path with some small inclines. Once we got to the pond, we took the trail to the left and noticed a rocky outcrop not too far away. The remainder of the trail wasn’t marked but we followed the herd path to a gem of a lookout point. The weather was ideal so we spent about an hour there enjoying the sunshine. And the best part, our dog loved it!!!

Let it be known that the trail on the left side of the lake does not connect to the trail on the right side of the lake. So that means you couldn’t go all around the lake in one direction. We found that out the hard way. On the left side of the lake, go around the backside of the big boulder/cliff to get up on it and do the look out. That was the one thing worth doing. The rest was eh.

Inman Pond Trail - Easy hike for a pretty good view. Finding the rock overlook was kinda difficult as the trail wasn’t well defined out that way. It was definitely worth the effort to find it. We did both the left and right side of the pond. Left has the overlook which is great, but right side has some good views too. Mud wasn’t too bad and could be easily avoided.

70 Hiked Inman Pond. Partly sunny a few rain drops. The trail kept me dry. Hiked off the trail map to find the rock ledge. Lots of rocks, roots, muddy spots, trees down. Wasn’t too buggy but was wearing bug spray. Two different inclines going up. If you’re using the trail map, when you come to the “y” in the trail, the map says stay right. If you want to go to the rock ledge, go left. Didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Nice hike with a nice view off the rock ledge

A lovely easy hike to a pretty pond. Lots of Red Columbine in the campsite area near the water. Saw a Kingfisher, turtles, and other smaller wildlife. Trail was muddy in some spots but I just walked through it. Trail is well marked.
