Lots of rocks but beautiful trail overlooking the water the whole time! Perfect for a daily dose of nature.

So peaceful with great views of the pond. Walking over roots and rocks adds to the intensity, but overall an easy trail with lots of places to rest.

Wow, this trail is absolutely stunning. Yes there's a pond and a few nice views of the pond and surrounding views along this slippery loop trail, however the trail alone is worth visiting for this hike. Its kind of like- whatever you envisioned as woods in fairy tales when you were a child.

A beautiful walk around the lake, shaded and relaxed. This should be rated easy; there are a few places where you step across small stones, but otherwise it’s very flat and chill. Also, be aware that the loop doesn’t quite complete itself, we needed to walk out to the Main Street to find our car. I’d do it again!

This isn't very far, and not much of an incline, but the places to stop by the pond are beautiful and peaceful. Very uneven trail so it makes you work a little.

It’s absolutely beautiful!!

Wonderful walk. There was no real incline, but the smooth rock terrain made for a fun trip. We were fortunate to see a couple of loons on the pond.

We walked around the lake after having lunch on a rock at entrance, it is a lovely walk along the lake side. Changing landscapes and nature, for an easy and relaxing time, recommended if you are looking for something easy and enjoyable.

Lovely flat hike with lots of different terrain! Make sure to wear good boots in rain as it is a bit slippery and muddy.

Nice hike not really difficult no elevation to speak of on this hike. The trail is beautiful but a bit muddy in spots.

Nice little trail around the pond, nothing fancy but it is pretty and at only 3 miles it'll give you time to do other things later

Enjoyed potentially the last fine day of Fall with a leisurely walk around the pond. The moss and the large boulders make you feel like you're in another world. A light frost in the morning made a few of the board-walks slick until things warmed up in the sun.

Kettle Pond trail is magical with it's lush and vibrant moss covered trees and boulders. The views of the pond are an added bonus! It took two hours to hike the full perimeter back to the day use parking. We were short on daylight and had to keep a steady pace. I would have enjoyed another hour to explore leisurely. A beautiful gem!
