Long Pond - Beaverkill Ridge Trail (Red) Professional Reviews and Guides

"Long Pond is a terrific destination for a family new to hiking or camping. The 2-mile, round-trip hike covers relatively level terrain and involves few trail junctions. Whether or not you plan to spend the night, the kids will enthusiastically investigate the well-built lean-to (it sleeps six) before racing to the pond in search of critters. For a day visit, we recommend that you bring a sheer net for skimming across the surface of the pond (or an old nylon stocking stretched over a coat hanger), a book to identify the animal tracks you’ll see along the bank of Willowemoc Creek and the shoreline of the pond, extra shoes for wading, towels for overeager waders, binoculars, and a picnic lunch. If you plan to stay overnight, bring along a flashlight covered with red cellophane. You can take a midnight stroll to spot wildlife: the subdued red light is less disruptive to animals, so you’ll see more."
