Summary: A lovely pond in a small bowl. You look across the pond at two small peaks. There is a lean-to shelter and about 5 tent sites. The area is heavily used and it was hard to find good wood for a fire but there are nice fire rings available and good tent platforms.
Trailhead: Take the Sawyer River Road off of route 302 to the end, passing the trail head for Mt Carrigain, Signal Ridge. Cross the foot bridge to get onto the trail.
This is a dirt road which is not open in the winter months.
There is a self-service fee tube at the parking lot and $3.00 will be needed per day. (Lat:44.0495 Lon:-71.38059)

I have made this hike numerous times and is one of my favorites. It is not challenging,but the scenery is spectacular. My friends and I enjoy the area primarily for weekend camping and fishing for Brook Trout. The road is not maintained in the winter, so be prepared to double your hiking distance. A great place to swim and fish. At 105 feet this is the second deepest body of water in the state.

Hiked this on December 21, 2006. Very little snow. This is a very good trail for family hiking. Very gradual elevation gain and scenic pond at the finish. There are tent platforms and a shelter at the end.
