We did this trail in early March. Snowpack was very good in the woods. The trail is shared with snowshoers and hikers, but we had no problems navigating on skis. This is a very nice loop, and quite windy, requiring a little extra skill. The trail along Long Pond was pretty well tracked by snowshoers and hikers, so we just slipped out onto the pond, which was much easier traveling. At the end of Long Pond, it's a little tricky where you cross over to Second Pond. We crossed the bridge, then cut over to Second Pond, and then skied across the pond to the picnic area on the far side. Then follow the road (Second Pond Road) up a short hill to the left, where the trail will head into the woods on the right back to Mill Pond. The trailhead is well marked by a sign on the right.
One note: upon entering the park, there is a sign that says "XC-Ski Parking". Don't follow this! Just stay straight on the main road to the parking area to Mill Pond, and following the trail will be easy from there.
