Very lovely place. I’ve lived in Brimfield for years but have never visited Dean Pond. The loop around the pond was a little confusing at first to find, but not too hard.

Wonderful trail for a nice workout And a great commune with nature. A real nice view as a reward at the end!

I hiked this trail on a late summer day with no idea as to what I was going to find. It is not a difficult climb but I certainly got a tunnel-like feeling. I almost turned back as I wasn't seeing anything exciting but I caught a glimpse of sky through the trees, went a little further, and came unto a ledge with a fantastic view.

Doesn’t exist anymore

The trail was EXTREMELY overgrown. Some of the weeds and plants grew tall and thick and were grown past my knees. At certain parts it was difficult to identify the trail from the surrounding wilderness. There was evidence of bears early on the trail and the area was extremely buggy. Bug spray is a must. The best part of the trail was around Dean Pond. Unless you are looking to bushwhack I would suggest only doing the pond trail.

Main trail is a good run but side trails are a mess today after the rain. Wasnt busy and fun to run with my dog on a leash. Didnt get to run the trail thats in this app but turned it into a 6.3mile run, mix of trail and road.

beautiful trail with a lot of views and waterways. good couple hours hiking

Started at Dearth Hill Rd parking area and headed west down the Gorge Trail which is very overgrown with no views of the gorge. Continued on Dean Pond Rd to Dean Pond dam (passed a big coyote eating a deer). Plenty of broken trees as this area is in the "tornado alley". Bushwacked up to the top of Dean Mtn then continued around the Pond. Returned to parking area via loop trail. Pretty nice, the best area is around the Dean Pond (you can park down there too and save the extra few miles if you want).

don't go here for a hike because there is no trail, at least not anymore. the entire woods surrounding the boat ramp are all posted, a royal waste of time trying to find it.

I don't see how this would be a good horseback trail. It's narrow, hard to get up the esker, tiny narrow bridges. It's mostly for walking or finding a good fishing spot. Nice trail, a good walk with my dogs. They get to chase the beavers. The beavers have fun outsmarting them. There's miles and miles of nice trails in the Brimfield Forest and many ideal for horseback riding and cross country skiing. But not this one.
