This hike is located in the northern section of the park and has blue blazes. The trail meanders around the pond. Along the way hikers should watch for plentiful wildlife including waterfowl, songbirds and large game such as white-tailed deer. If you are lucky maybe even a bald eagle. For those looking for a longer adventure there are more than 8 miles of connecting trails in the area. There is camping available nearby. This trail is dog friendly, but your pup must be on leash.
