Quick, simple hike with plenty of nature to be seen...beavers, fish, birds. The pond is very pretty, surrounded by several Mountain Laurels.

I don’t know if it was because it was one of the first actual spring feeling days or what but this was an amazing little/easy hike around the pond. When you first get there, it’s a little loud with the road and all the people there bbq’ing, fishing and “partying” at the picnic tables but once you get far enough away, it’s not as loud and is very peaceful and beautiful.
