Little Rock Pond to Clarendon Gorge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is one of the best hikes on the A.T. in Vermont. The gentle climb from the road to Little Rock Pond is a great way to get out and stretch your legs. The initial portion of trail runs alongside Little Black Brook, and many small waterfalls and pools are visible from the Trail. The clear, cold water of the pond reflects Green Mountain rising above it on the opposite shore. It is a popular day hike to the pond, particularly in the fall. (A caretaker is on duty in peak season, and fees are charged for staying in the shelter.) The foliage around the pond is breathtaking at its peak.
If you want to have any solitude, try to do this hike during the week or leave the trailhead by 10 a.m. to beat the crowds. However, the number of hikers thins out considerably once you hike beyond the pond. The climb of White Rocks Mountain is long, but ascends at a relatively gradual rate."
