Description

The trail (red blazed) begins with a gentle climb up a wooded hillside. Upon reaching a gravel road, the trail doglegs right for about 100 yards along the road, then turns left and re-enters the woods again. Follow the trail up through the woods and into a coniferous forest. The trail turns right, climbs along a wooded ridge, and descends to the shore of Mountain Pond.

Went up on a Sunday this past weekend with a couple friends- didn't see any other hikers. Pretty straight forward trail with some decent elevation at the beginning- definitely a 'moderate' level hike. Saw a few moose droppings on the way up, but the only actual wildlife were a handful brown snakes we saw periodically. I think this hike took us ~2 hours, including spending maybe 20-30 minutes at the top. At the pond, there are paths around either side of the pond, but they were mostly overgrown and tough to navigate. No real views of other mountain ranges at the end of the trail due to trees, but the pond itself was pristine.. Did not swim in the pond though, just not hot enough.
