    Harrisville Pond Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Wild blueberry bushes peek out among the cedar and pine dominating the shoreline of Harrisville Pond. Mountain and sheep laurel blossoms bring delicate touches of pink and white to the landscape in early summer, along with the white flowers of the lightly scented bog magnolia. In midsummer, the aroma of sweet pepperbush fills the air as cranberries begin to grow on its moist shores.

    Old cedar stumps in the large cove on the northwest end of the pond are perfect basking spots for turtles. If you feel energetic, you can paddle to its northeast corner, where the Oswego River enters, then paddle upstream for about 1.0 mile. The first large cove on the right (east) as you paddle north becomes carpeted with yellow and white pond lilies in late summer. This is a good opportunity to combine biking and hiking in the same outing by starting your trip on Lake Oswego."
