A two-hour walk through a peaceful preserve, with overnight shelters for hikers who wish to linger. Traveling to Amity Pond through valleys stocked with black-and-white cattle and maple syrup signs, visitors are prone to expect a romantic pool circled by lush wildflower meadows and stunning mountain views. Reality dashes such illusions. In fact, Amity Pond is a tiny kettle hole well disguised by brambles and poplar trees.
