Beautiful trail, even in the light snow. There was a tree down around .5 mi in, and the snow/rocks were too slippery to cross the river and continue on the trail at around 1 mi in so we turned back. Would love to revisit this one in the warmer months!

Gorgeous sunny day in the forest! The trail is 90% rocks and boulders so definitely need sturdy shoes, sturdy ankles, hiking poles or a great sense of balance. The trail around the pond is the most challenging part of the hike so if you want a scenic lake view, maybe skip it and sit lakeside instead!

We did this trail yesterday and it is a fairly easy hike up-despite the trail being quite rocky. The pond is beautiful and the loop around was the best part, so make sure to do this-this is where you get any views. There were no views on the way up, but often a little creek as we walked up. We were the only ones on the trail going up around 10:45 am, but on the way down, we passed about 5 groups of people. There are a few trails that continue up to other spots from the pond, but don’t know how nice they are. The entire trail with the pond loop registered 5.3 miles on my phone, so it is longer than 4.8-but not by much. My app is accurate as I use it on all my hikes.

Beautiful hike that winds up the river to the Pond. Can be very crowded on warm days. At some parts of the pond, people were not socially distancing and many families had their dogs off leash. Hopefully the state wont close the trail due to these irresponsible people.

What is this? My daughter and I went to the trail today. Everything was good before I found this. I found it on my daughter‘s feet after she played in the water. This thing was red because it sucked blood. Any one knows what it is? See a picture in photos of the trail.

I recommend going this way, not the opposite direction so you can go down the rock scrambles from Green Mountain peak to the pond.

I would say this is a super easy trail. We hiked 2 miles in and then went to the left- around the pond and then setup our camp. Gorgeous pond, super clear and warm water!! Great place to camp, no bear box however.

Beautiful trail with a gorgeous pond at the end. Easy in terms of exertion and incline. Very rocky and a bit muddy, but the views on the trail and at the pond made it all worth it. Our dog loved it, as well.

Good hike overall. I would consider this an easy hike from an exertion perspective. Rocky much of the way though.

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!
