The Pond Trail is an easy 1.5-mile trail. The path is nearly a loop; it begins at the display case on the western side of the beach parking lot and ends near Picnic Shelter #9. Hikers will enjoy glimpses of the lake while walking through loblolly pine forests, hardwood forests, an old field, and past three ponds. A long boardwalk traverses a wetland teaming with buttonbush, black needle rush and other water-loving vegetation.

Great walk with my 3yr old. Easy access from the trail to several small beaches (water is low at Jordan Lake at the moment). I did not find the entrance of the trail at the parking lot (saw it later: walk 200 meters along the main road) so I started it at the southern end; at Seaforth Beach parking lot. A short part of the wooden boardwalk near the southwest end of the loop is broken, but we could walk on the dry soil where the boardwalk used to be.

The flat easy Pond Trail at Seaforth on Jordan Lake is a loop to three ponds in various states, one has deep black water, the other two are full of debris. The trail starts off through hardwoods and then a boardwalk over a muddy section, then enters a pine forest. Would be good for a 1.4 mile trail run as there are not many roots and hardly any rocks. Not really that interesting, but the Seaforth beach and surrounding areas have plenty of activities.
