Cranberry Pond Trail parallels the Park Tote Road for 1.5 miles between Rocky Pond and Togue Pond. Its western trailhead begins immediately across the Park Tote Road from where the Kettle Pond Trail ends, 1.2 miles west of the Togue Pond Gate. It passes Cranberry Pond and Rocky Pond, two of the many ponds formed by glacial action in the south part of Baxter State Park. The eastern end of Cranberry Pond Trail is a few hundred feet east of the Togue Pond Gate, near a Park service building and parking area. The trail is blue-blazed.
