Hike of the Five Ponds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The ponds of Maine are beautiful, and on this hike you experience not just one pond, but five. The flora and fauna are also representative of the state. The journey begins in a hardwood forest with a floor that is dotted with trout lily and spring beauty just as the weather begins to warm after winter. At a bit higher elevation, in the spruce and fir forest, be on the lookout for a spruce grouse or Canada jay.

In New England, the spruce grouse is often called a partridge. The Canada jay has earned the nickname “camp robber” because it has been known to be brave enough to boldly hop into camp and make off with bits of food from a hungry hiker’s plate. Moose and loons are often seen in or around all five ponds."
