“A doubletrack trail that becomes singletrack as it undulates gently into the forest.”

Poison Ivy tends to thrive near the swamp areas here. Be on the lookout.
Starting from Orange Access Trail - West
after a little less than a mile, the trail curves right and comes to an intersection. Bear right, sticking with the green blazes, as the path draws you closer to the pond.
Find a rock to sit on near the water. You may be able to observe some water-based wildlife such as swans or beavers among the lilies.
The trail continues inland across an old stonewall and passes through a large field full of tall grass. Shortly after, the trail becomes heavily forested and is followed by a smaller field, with the Ned's Mountain parking lot just ahead.
