Nice hike up to the pond! The walk around the pond is definitely a HIKE up and down. If you walk to the right when you get to the pond there’s good spots to sit. Definitely swim it’s beautiful. There were horse flies and bees around the pond though, so just be careful!

One of my favorite places, I’ve been going here since I was a kid. So peaceful. Trail is muddy, especially in spring. There are dropped trees on the trail, but I saw a man cutting them back yesterday. Overall a nice walk in the woods to a beautiful pond.

Great features. Water. Ridge views. Lots of photo worthy spots along the stream. Lots of rocks though. The pond was worth it though.

Enjoyed this hike. Very little incline but super muddy and lots of loose, wet snow today. Harder hike than we expected with those conditions but still beautiful and the frozen lake was a nice surprise.

Excellent trail that goes along two creeks. Lot’s of rocks to negotiate. The pond at 2.2 miles up is a great payoff. We didn’t see another person.

A nice easy hike. Along stream much of the way with a lake at the end. Nothing difficult, but pretty scenery.

After 20-30 minutes, this was an easy trail through a beautiful forest with a streaming on one side. It got tougher from there. No steep climb, just very rocky, and having rained earlier, the rocks were on the slippery side. The Pond was beautiful. And we did the trail all the way around the pond. Fun hike! Our dog, a Vizsla, never needed any help , although he had some rock scrambling.

Great hike - done back in May. Was before bug season and leaves were just beginning to pop. Awesome weather and day.

amazing hike! It takes around 45-50 mins to reach the pond. The pond was stunning and definitely worth the trek in. Lots of rocks and bridges along the trails which made it fun! The pond was amazing. The water was very cold and refreshing. We went in late July and it was moderately busy. Bugs weren't that bad at all! We hiked with our dog and noticed quite a few other dogs on the trail. I really recommend this hike!!
