In a quiet corner of the Northeast Kingdom is Flagg Pond, a remote and wild place. Visitors are immediately struck that the shoreline is almost entirely undeveloped. The pond is very shallow with a maximum depth of only 6 feet. The shore consists of mats of grassy wetland and dense forest, the most important of which is the distinctive Northern white cedar swamp. There is a distinct and magical atmosphere within Northern white cedar swamps, with their shaggy cedar trees, soggy understory, sparse herbaceous plant layer and an array of luxuriant mosses and liverworts.

While the woods are lovely the trail is virtually impassable and difficult to find and follow. In serious need of maintenance!
