North Pond

North Pond Professional Review and Guide

"North Pond is wild and beautiful, particularly the north and west ends. If one is looking for moose in this area, North Pond is where they should be. The heavily forested hillsides of hemlock, paper birch, aspen, white pine, oak, maple, and many other tree species should provide refuge during the day, while acres and acres of marsh vegetation should provide food by night. Although we paddled here quietly at sunset, however, we did not see any moose.

The north end is filled with twisting channels that meander their way in and out among the islands and floating chunks of marsh vegetation. One could spend several hours paddling north along the east side then down the west side, exploring each of the extensive channels reaching back up into the surrounding hills."

Getting to put-in point was tricky but pretty clear. The water was great and peaceful for kayak 2 hour ride. No way to go around the area like the map indicates, but the water is clean and the kayak area is clear as long as you stay in the most open areas. Great for a day trip. Calm waters and some wild life.
