Wonderful walk. There was no real incline, but the smooth rock terrain made for a fun trip. We were fortunate to see a couple of loons on the pond.

We walked around the lake after having lunch on a rock at entrance, it is a lovely walk along the lake side. Changing landscapes and nature, for an easy and relaxing time, recommended if you are looking for something easy and enjoyable.

Lovely flat hike with lots of different terrain! Make sure to wear good boots in rain as it is a bit slippery and muddy.

Nice little trail around the pond, nothing fancy but it is pretty and at only 3 miles it'll give you time to do other things later

Enjoyed potentially the last fine day of Fall with a leisurely walk around the pond. The moss and the large boulders make you feel like you're in another world. A light frost in the morning made a few of the board-walks slick until things warmed up in the sun.

Kettle Pond trail is magical with it's lush and vibrant moss covered trees and boulders. The views of the pond are an added bonus! It took two hours to hike the full perimeter back to the day use parking. We were short on daylight and had to keep a steady pace. I would have enjoyed another hour to explore leisurely. A beautiful gem!
