Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

A level trail running alongside the Echo Pond.

Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · Wildlife

Description

From the parking lot for Rocky Woods Reservation, the trail begins as a spur from the Loop Trail. The terrain is doubletrack with soil and some rock. As the trail approaches Echo Pond, it begins to rise. At the crest of the hill is the pond as well as Echo Pond North Shore Trail. Continuing on Echo Pond Trail, the trail runs alongside, and practically in, the pond as it makes its way past. The trail finishes with a level and smooth section ending at East and West Trail.

Echo Pond looking south. The trail runs right along the bank, or to the left of the large rock when the bank is too wet.
