The Daicey Pond Nature Trail loops around the pond, staying close to the shore. The hike offers ?ne views of the surrounding mountains and a chance to ?nd solitude without doing a lot of work. The woods are in turn cool and mossy, then angular and rocky. The west end of Daicey Pond can be a busy place. The area is used by thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail, day hikers, and campers at Daicey Pond camps’ cabins. Either before or after your hike, be sure to visit the camps. The view of Katahdin from the dock behind the library is one of the best in the park. Next to the library, along the shore of the pond, are two ancient white pines—maybe the oldest in the park.
