Wear shoes you don’t mind getting muddy or water shoes. Fun places to play by river. My 9 and 7 year old made it through just fine. Lots of rocks and roots to use as you go. Great sounds of the river almost the whole way. Play for about an hour and a half if you stop to play in the water. Lots of mosquitoes. It’s a cool hike. Waterfall is at the beginning. Trail clearly marked with blue and yellow rectangle.

This is an interesting trail with decent variety. Pretty muddy if it’s rained but plenty of rocks and roots to help you through. The waterfall is actually at the beginning. When you walk the trail it’s about 1.35 miles out and back, following the river. The birds and river sound is nice as you walk. No real difficulty, just wear the right shoes. We walked this down and back in about an hour and a half. It’s wooded the whole way so need for sun worries but lots of bugs so wear a bug repellent. Enjoy!

Some rocks but I would consider this easy. Enjoyable hike.

Tons of foot bridges. Also saw 10 white tail deer

There are no markers or blazes to be found. The trails are cleared and mostly well surfaced but numerous trails crossing each other make this a Lewis and Clark type adventure. You’ll need GPS or old school compass and sense of direction to get you back to your starting point. Elevation changes are not frequent or steep so a good hike for folks that can cover distance but are challenged by climbs.

I parked on old Rockville rd (closest to long pond lookout) but ended up passing by all the parking areas anyways. I think I’d start at the furthest next time just to make it a straight out and back, but you GOTTA hit the rhodo forest section from Rockville rd lot that meets up with the main trail. Will I EVER see these rhododendrons bloom??

I started at one of the trailheads for lower Beach Pond (on Rte 165) so I could do a loop of sorts. Regarding Deep Pond Trail, the first half going south from Rte 165 is a wide track, a road really, and while pretty is not the most interesting in terms of hiking terrain. After the junction with the Tippecansett trail that goes to lower Beach Pond, the Deep Pond trail becomes narrower, more interesting, and more beautiful. The trail was more scenic and interesting than I expected, and Deep Pond is a lovely jewel at the end. The only downside of the route I took is that the last 4/10ths of a mile were along Rte 165 to get to my car.

Sweet trail, perfect to feel a bit of nature (sounds of birds and rushing/pooling water). Definitely will share the trail with others.

This was a great hike! I explored some of the side trails for some variety! Definitely use GPS if you go off the main trail! Ran into someone who used to frequent there in the 70’s and he gave us some pretty neat history including the quarry and some knocked down houses! Perfect place to spot some lady slipper flowers!

It's a way to access the Great Swamp, which is a natural landmark.

Good trail, very rocky and a lot of tree roots. Part of the green trail was out for restoration, it was very steep and rocky.
