Grassy Outlet Canoe Professional Reviews and Guides

"This hike passes four ponds: Tracy, Elbow, Daicey, and Grassy. It’s a really good hike to take in the morning or evening to see wildlife. The ponds are generally shallow and ?lled with aquatic plants. From several places along the hike, you have ?ne views of the mountains north and west. Grassy and Elbow Ponds have rental canoes.

Tracy, Elbow, and Grassy Ponds are all fairly shallow ponds with lots of aquatic plants growing in them. Great places to find moose and other wildlife. Tracy Pond is the first and smallest pond. Sedges and other plants grow out from the shore almost to its center. A few rocks rest among the greenery in the shallow water. Doubletop Mountain rests atop the dense forest across the pond. Watch for moose and ducks."

"Three ponds in under 2 miles—what could be better? You can also add a fourth pond by extending the hike. There are different ways to reach Grassy Pond; you also can get there from Daicey Pond. This route takes you from Park Tote Road and heads south on the Appalachian Trail (AT) for a shorter trip.

As you pass different trail junction signs, you will realize how interconnected many of the trails are, which makes various options available to you. This area offers prime wildlife watching, so keep your eyes and ears peeled. If you get a key ahead of time from the Daicey Pond Ranger Station, you can add a canoe trip to your hike with canoes available at both the inlet and outlet of Grassy Pond."
