Brendan T. Byrne State Forest: Pakim Pond Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Each winter we hike a small section of the 50-mile-long, pink-blazed Batona Trail that leads to Pakim Pond—a crown jewel within the 34,725-acre Brendan T. Byrne State Forest. The water, stained by iron deposits in the soil, may be the color of dark tea, but it’s clean. It’s best to come during fall and winter when the insects are gone and the rich green color of the pines add warmth on the bleakest day.

If you do visit during the buggy summer months, be sure to bring insect repellant and check yourself for ticks. Beneath this ground lies a huge aquifer believed to contain 17 trillion gallons of clean water. Aboveground this wilderness area is unique with its vast array of rare plants, pine stands, cedar swamps, and more than 350 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals."
