First time exploring this area. It was a lovely summer day to adventure around these ponds.

Snowshoeing

Snowshoed this trail just up to Ross Pond. Started snowing on the way back, very pretty. I intend to return in a warmer season as I can only imagine how nice the ponds must look when not covered in snow and ice. I did not know that there is also a trail to some waterfalls from here. Must be quite new since its DEC marked but not on my NatGeo map. Def will check that out in the spring too. FYI-the trail head is actually several miles east on rte 28 than the listing shows it on the map.
