A bit slippery in the ice, but pretty views of the pond and mountain in the winter with no leaves. Easy walk.

Muddy and unkempt... but that just makes it all the more atmospheric on foggy rainy days in late winter!

The yellow trail is a 2.5 mile loop. It is okay for the first and last mile but the south east section turns narrow and overgrown with some muddy parts, especially along the farm's barbed wire fence where the cows were congregated. I won't do it again.

Thompson Pond is a wildlife sanctuary maintained by The Nature Conservancy. People are encouraged to visit the area but DOGS are NOT welcome! It is an easy 2.7 miles that can be hiked in less than 2 hours. The trail is somewhat narrow on the east side but passable nevertheless. The pond is home to large numbers of waterfowl.
