Lovely walk to a beautiful lake. Rocky in some sections, but nothing too difficult. Mostly flat with 2 or 3 moderate inclines. Rock outcropping right on the lake is a perfect picnic spot!

Great walk in the woods. The pond is so beautiful and the view of the surrounding mountains is spectacular.

Great easy hike for families and kids of all ages. My 3 kids (11,8,3) all made it easily. The views of the pond were fantastic at the end of the hike, bring your suits if you want to cool off with a quick swim off the rock.

Great trail! There are two spur trails marked on my recording that will get you to the water. No idea where the All Trails recording is going! Check out the cabin ruins on the second spur.

Loved this hike. It was a beautiful January 1st hike with the trees dusted with snow. Very little incline so it’s good for anybody. The abandoned fireplace where a house once stood at the edge of the pond is really neat. I will def be back to check this out in the summer and perhaps take a swim in the lake.

Beautiful and secluded pond. If you want water and views with ease then this is your hike! Great scenery of the surrounding mountains! Takes about 20-25 min each way. Nice, fun, easy hike. Though, there were a couple of trees down along the way (10/11/19), it wasn't a big issue. Otherwise, perfect for almost anyone! Would surely recommend.

It is a good easy hike but trail is poorly marked once you get to the pond. Mosquitoes were viscous!

A pleasant mostly flat walk to a very pretty pond. Swarmed by flies and mosquitoes tho some respite at the end.

I would not recomend this trail. With amazing trails around this one is the worst.

Easy snowshoe trail in February. Nice for beginner snowshoeing. We used micro spikes on the rocks when we arrived at Moose Pond, a little over a mile in. Hard to find trail head. The parking area was not plowed so we parked a 10th of a mile south of the trail head in a turn around off of route 3. The trail head is located next to a house with horses in the backyard. You can see the metal bridge from route 3.

First - listen to your app and look for the road - It sneaks up fast. We drove by it and came back to find it just past a house on the road. It’s winter and we were the first ones on the drive in. Maybe parking for 2 or 3 cars. Trail starts right at the parking lot - over a bridge. Now - to be fair - it was a cold crisp morning with a little bit of snow, but this trail is pretty fantastic. Narrow paths through trees dusted with snow. A beautiful setting. Trail is a bit different than the app (look for the large cut tree about 8/10 the way on the app and go right). Down about 100 yard there is an old chimney stack, then 15 yards to an outcrop and a beautiful view of Moose Pond and on to ADK peaks. Beautiful. Highly recommend. A bit slick - but YakTraks do the trick.

Flat, easy walk that we (and our dog) enjoyed. Nice view of the pond at the end even on a rainy day.

Trail was good. Thought there would be more people but we go to Moose lake and it was totally empty, which was great. Great big rocks to bask on or to go swimming from. Be sure to take bug spray as the mosquitos are voracious on 1.5mi hike in. Lake and views are definitely worth the hike. Rated 5 for the lake and view, 3 for the bugs on the trail.

Fun easy hike to the pond. Lots of snow down but it was packed well. We got by fine with microspikes. You could probably do it with just boots because there is very little grade. Nice and tranquil ending. Probably took a total of 1.5 hours out and back.

The pond was amazing,the hike was very easy and flat,even though the day that we went was rainy we still loved it! There was no beach that we saw but there was a great rock to have a picnic on!

We hiked this trail with our three German short haired pointers. It was an easy dog friendly hike that allowed us and them to swim in the pond. The trail was very quiet and in fact we were the only ones on it. The view of the mountains surrounding the pond is breathtaking and peaceful. The only drawback is that there is no easy access to the pond at the end of the trail, but there is a rocky area that allows access to the water. Overall it's a hike that we'll repeat again with the dogs.

The only difficulty was that the entrance from the road is not marked. we drove by a few times before figuring out what must be the entrance.
