This trail is also a snowmobile trail so you walk a long a wide cleared path for quite a ways before you get to the trail split for Safford pond. You really have to pay attention at the sign, the trail to the pond is very overgrown and hard to see! The pond is a short hike from there and is a nice view. You will definitely need to tick check yourself after!

First 2.5 miles of trail is on a snowmobile trail that is overgrown. Last .5 miles of trails not bad. Nice Pond. Also West Pond Waterfalls is something to check out also. It's about .5 miles in from start of trail then left .1 miles. BRING BUGSPRAY will need it.
