Found this trail quite good in the snow. A snowmobile trail that follows around Stony Pond and Big and Little Sherman, and right past the Brook Falls Yurts. Awesome trail. Great for snowshoeing, and when you reach that lean-to at the Stony-Pond-what a relief! Great place to have a snack or lunch. The lean-to perches right on the pond perfectly-no motorized boats allowed. Lots of snowmobiles in the winter. On the trail there, after about 1.2 miles, check out the beaver dams. You might even see a beaver (we didn't though).
