Hiked this on Jan 5, 2017. Easy walk up to the pond on microspikes. Trail was well packed down and a little icy. Walking across the lake was no problem. We bushwhacked over to Coffee Pond with no worries. Snowshoes were required in the woods as the snow as over a foot deep. Great views of Pharaoh Mt. from the surface of Spectacle Pond!

I was happy to see how well kept it was. Also, we went on a weekday but there was not too much traffic, which was nice. Very peaceful. Tons of picture opps, a nice little workout and a beautiful scenic route made for the perfect autumn hike ♡

Fairly easy, mostly flat trail to a nice pond with Pharaoh Mtn in the distance. Took about an hour one-way at a comfortable pace.
