HikingGreat!Snow

Absolutely beautiful! It was a winter wonderland walking around the lake. Snowshoes recommended. Parking is a little further back in the window, adds about 0.3 miles round trip, so not bad.

Lovely, hard packed snowmobile trail to a beautiful frozen pond, which we were able to walk around. Didn’t need snowshoes or spikes ..

FishingGreat!

Trail was hardpacked snow as of 1/31 thanks to snowmobile traffic. Broke trail on the Three Barrel Trail west of the pond. Beautiful spot but parking is very limited, as access road is not fully plowed.

Icy, muddy, and lots of running water. Pretty, but will have to come back when things are more frozen. Wasn’t enough ice for spikes but was very slick in spots. Couldn’t get to the actual lot as there was a snow pile in the middle of road

We almost missed out on this trail because it didn't come up as "kid friendly." I'm glad I took a look at the other Easy trails in the area because this one was great with kids! Mostly flat, very easy trail, but not dull. Lots of nice places to stop along the pond, a picnic table and several fire pits along the way. Lots of salamanders and chipmunks. Not busy at all on a weekday, only a few other people out fishing.

HikingGreat!

Went today and had a blast, beautiful view of the lake and the marsh was stunning. A good trail for beginners, it is relatively flat and has a lot of great scenic points. Going to take my dog next time we go.

Working on completing the Chester challenge. A BEAUTIFUL trail!!! The road leading up to the trail was not lowered car friendly. I was worried driving down the i was going to a dead end without parking but there is an actual parking area and a trail head with a log book. The trail map at check in didn’t show the pond loop trail however there is a trail with markers had to do some slight Bush whacking. I followed along with the gps function on the app to make it easier. Hard to get lost since your following the pond lol. The foliage, pond, giant rocks and forest were very peaceful. A wonderful morning hike with my family! Definitely recommend this for families. Terrain was easy to navigate.
