Horseshoe Pond Professional Review and Guide
"Horseshoe Pond is small and shallow, but its magnificent setting, with steep hills hovering on all sides and two very different nearby hiking trails, prompted us to include it. A couple of small cabins stand on the Horseshoe southern end of the pond, but the north end is protected as part of the White Mountain National Forest.
The tree-covered hillsides give way to dense shrubbery along the shore. Rhodora, a type of rhododendron that boasts clusters of beautiful rose-purple flowers in late May, dominates the shoreline. There is little marshy area, but that is more than made up for by nearby Moose Pond. Prominent fish species: brown trout, brook trout, and smallmouth bass."
