Quaker Pond Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Look for the beaver houses and watch the waterfowl in the pond. In spring and fall, ponds like this are places for waterfowl to rest before continuing on their migration. (Unfortunately, many people feed waterfowl, which makes them less likely to migrate.) At dusk or dawn you might be lucky enough to see deer. Take sunflower seeds to feed the black-capped chickadees from your hand. Birds Likely Seen: Chickadees, bluebirds, ducks, geese, nuthatches, rails, herons, bitterns, tree swallows, bobolinks, meadowlarks, hawks, turkeys, titmice, warblers, finches and shorebirds."

"This trail offers an easy stroll on a wide path. Cattails and bushes are encroaching on the pond, but water is still visible at the southern end. Waterfowl and lily pads are plentiful in the remaining pond. In spring and winter it’s a fun place to identify animal tracks (deer, raccoon, beaver, etc.) in the mud. On a winter walk we watched a mink scurry across the ice. In July we’ve enjoyed grazing on the raspberries and blackberries that line the trail. Surface: Mowed-grass and dirt path."
