This pristine pond nestles within the 14,635-acre Myles Standish State Forest. Look for endangered Plymouth redbelly turtles. Besides paddling this beautiful pond, you can also take advantage of camping and extensive hiking and mountain bike trails. The backdrop includes numerous kettle-hole ponds and trees adapted to sand barrens—pitch pine and scrub oak.
