A small trail with excellent views of South Pond.

Description

This trail branches off the 4-way junction north of South Pond. In 0.1 miles, there is a small trail (straight forward) with a small bench that overlooks South Pond. While there is swimming at North Pond, I wouldn't recommend swimming in South Pond (on account of the leeches). The trail turns right and follows along the northern shore of South Pond. It passes by the eastern terminus of Tyler Swamp Loop, the western terminus of Tyler Swamp Loop, then ends when it reaches North Pond Loop.

Of all the trails in Savoy Mountain State Forest, this is the only one that appears to have been worked on recently. There are a few new bog bridges through the muddy sections.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Wintergreen, striped maple, beech, eastern hemlock.
Fauna: Chickadee, leeches.
