Love this trail. A little rocky and muddy in spots, but the pond makes it completely worth it.

Very beautiful trail that mostly runs next to a creek. Very little change in elevation, rocky, but not too strenuous.

We really enjoyed this trail. Not difficult and very pretty. There were plenty of boards to traverse the marsh areas.

Perfect for a moderate hike. Rewarded with a picturesque pond and swimming opportunity. Loved the hike!

Even with the mud and rocks this was a treat! Lots of interesting flora and fungi with a nice variety of terrain. And then there's the pond...wow! Nice hike around the lake.

Very very nice hike with not much of an incline and having the trail start off along the stream was nice. I highly recommend waterproof boots. Half the trail was all mud and water. It was a 2.2 mile hike to the shelter that could sleep possibly 8 on the platforms and 2 on the ground. Housekeeper wasn't there yet because it was early in the season. I've tried fishing there with no luck. But I've heard there is brook trout in there. The pond was beautiful and there is a trail that goes completely around the pond and a 1 mile trail that goes along the ridge with some cliffs. There are 4 tent platforms around the shelter with a nice fire pit and an outhouse. About .4 miles from the shelter is group camping platforms. Great day hike but I did an overnight at the shelter. I hope this review helped you out and I highly recommend this hike.

Love the surprise view when you get to the lake. Path could be muddy and slippery after the rain

Great trails. Lots of rocks, so boots are a good idea. Perfect for beginners and great for kids. Beautiful pond views as well.

Drove out here a few days ago to hike this trail after a buddy of mine showed me this trail last year, but we had to head back to Albany. Beautiful streams follow you the whole way, its about to get muddy for the next few weeks, keep that in mind! After a few miles you come across Little Rock Pond and its gorgeous views! There is an area to set up camp and emergency shelter as well.

Went there today. Still has access to trail because of warm weather. Was a really great hike. Took us with our dog about 3 hours. We hiked out and around the pond. Beautiful scenery. Easy hike.

Great day hike trail to an awesome swimming spot! Jumping off the rocks is great! Just keep an eye out for those sneaky little snakes that are everywhere!
