Groton State Forest-Kettle Pond Trail and Owls Head

Groton State Forest-Kettle Pond Trail and Owls Head Professional Review and Guide

"This is a three-hour hike around a forest pond and a short walk to Owls Head Mountain.

More than 25,000 acres of ponds, beaches, campgrounds, and trails within easy reach of the capital of Vermont make Groton State Forest a premier choice for family recreation. Of all the varied attractions in this timberland retreat, Owls Head Mountain undoubtedly enjoys the most notable reputation. With the aid of a convenient auto road, campers, hikers, and casual passersby find a short trail to one of the finest views in the Green Mountain State at the top of this prominent peak. For a few discriminating visitors, though, the Kettle Pond Trail presents Owls Head in a very different light. Far removed from the pressing crowds, this private view from the shore of a wild wood pond envelops hikers in a natural realm at the heart of this preserve."
