Jones Spring Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Walking at Jones Spring has a steady rhythm to it and it goes like this: woodland scene, broad marsh views, then forest scene again. It is this alternating pattern of habitats that makes for an enjoyable and interesting hike. The various forest stretches are intimate, while the marsh and lake segments over long sight lines and opportunities to scan for wildlife.

Begin by hiking southwest from the trailhead on a broad footpath to Fanny Lake. Stay straight (southwest) on this wide trail, ignoring a trail entering from the right (north). Go straight (southwest) again as the Yellow Trail enters from the left at mile 0.3. Walk west along the south shore of Fanny Lake, a picturesque .25-mile-long pond lined with birch trees and five pleasant designated campsites."

Much more difficult than expected. Lot of switch backs up to a very steep and rocky hill. Awesome! Hard work but great fun!
