A steady climb to a pristine mountain pond and a nice picnic spot on open rock by the water. Along the way, see an unusual assortment of boulders throughout the woods and a brook with many cascades and small pools. Very colorful during fall foliage season! The Abbey Pond Trail (blue blazes) enters the woods on a gravel path. At first, it climbs gently, with dense hardwood forest to either side and open sky above. At about 0.1 mile, a boulder on your left grabs your attention, as it appears sliced into sections. More large boulders dot the woods. After crossing an old stone wall, the path becomes somewhat steeper and the gravel gives way to larger loose stones.
