Amherst Mountain Community Forest Professional Review and Guide

"Fragrant forests of spruce and fir, lush green mosses, and granite ledges characterize this loop hike to the remote environs of Ducktail and Partridge ponds.

The Amherst Mountains Community Forest is a 4,974-acre tract of rugged forestland encompassing six remote ponds, miles of streams, significant wetlands, and a jumble of granite ledges, hills, and mountains. This route through the best of the forest’s backcountry visits two remote ponds on a scenic loop
that combines Ducktail Pond and Partridge Pond trails."
