The Newark Pond Natural Area includes a small island with nesting state threatened common loons and 2,410 feet of wild and protected shoreline. The Vermont Center for Ecostudies monitors loon activity on the pond. Common loons can be seen from the Conservancy’s trail along the shore of Newark Pond. Please stay at least 200 feet from loon nests May 15 to August 15.

Nice, easy loop. I went late morning and didn't see any loons, but I enjoyed the rest of the hiking loop. Just a beautiful walk through the forest. There are even a few benches if you want to stop and rest a bit. Lots of spider webs - I expect the trail is not well traveled.
