Runaround Pond is really two shallow weedy streams, teeming with wildlife and aquatic vegetation. It takes several hours to paddle back to the farthest navigable reaches of each stream, but the effort will be well worth it. You will see wood ducks, black ducks, great blue heron, muskrat, turtles, fish, and myriad other wildlife. When we paddled here on a beautiful Sunday morning in July, we met only one other canoe. Aquatic vegetation severely limits access for motorboats. There are several large, flat boulders at the boat access, overhung by red pines: perfect for a picnic.
