Greeley Ponds Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is a moderate ski tour into the beautiful Greeley Ponds, which are nestled beneath ice cliffs and towering rock walls. For a longer tour, continue from the ponds to climb and descend the Kancamagus Brook Ski Trail, or ski Livermore Road back to Waterville Valley."

"This pleasant, relatively flat trail, through Mad River Notch, was the first snowshoe hike we ever completed. We began on the Kancamagus Highway side, meandering through sun-dappled woods until we reached the set of gorgeous mountain ponds.

For little effort, you get a touch of mountain wilderness and pristine winter scenery. In Lincoln, a popular tourist town, you’ll find a variety of shops, restaurants, and lodgings. There are also a handful of outdoor guide and gear outfits, where you can sign up for a guided trip into the woods, rent snowshoes, pick up maps, and get trail information. If you have downhill ski enthusiasts in your group, there are several alpine ski resorts in the area."

"It’s not panoramic views that excite most kids but plank walks and bridges, frog-filled ponds, and rivers. The 4-mile hike to and from Greeley Ponds includes all these favorites and covers relatively level terrain, making it a great walk for the entire family. Gravelly beaches border the two wilderness ponds and allow ample room for exploring the shore or stretching out under the sun. This is a popular route, so expect to have company."
