This out-of-the-way mountain pond offers a short, pleasurable paddle between wooded hillsides. A stand of majestic hemlock and white pine greets you at the access. Expect to see Canada geese; this is also a great place to study aquatic vegetation. Mountain laurel puts on a spectacular display in June.
