Nestled in the middle of the Moose River Plains Wild Forest, the trail to Mitchell Ponds is an easy stroll along an old logging road, followed by a quick jaunt along the lake. The trail follows mostly level ground and is easy to follow, so expect to make good time. Trail conditions also make it an excellent introduction to hiking. Registration booths are at the entrances to the area, and the whole road system is open to vehicles from Memorial Day to the end of hunting season. It is a popular destination during hunting season, and you might think that more vehicles are in the recreation area than on the main roads.
