A little bit of everything—a cascading brook, a large secluded pond, and mountain views—makes this a perfect day trip or an easy overnighter. Most people (and other guidebooks) approach Little Rock Pond via the Appalachian Trail/Long Trail (AT/LT) from USFS Road 10 south of the pond. The Homer Stone Brook Trail (blue blazes) is 0.3-mile longer, round-trip, but it is a perfect 10 as far as hiking in southern Vermont goes. It begins with an easy walk through the woods that nips away at the elevation as it follows scenic Homer Stone Brook, paralleling the brook most of the way to the pond—a small lake really. Once at the pond, you can explore the loop around it, make the short climb up Green Mountain on its western shore, or both.
