4/23/10 - Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust

                                                                                        

This hike was suggested by Scott and was a good one. Thank you Scott. For more information about GPMCT go here: http://greatpondtrust.org/

We had hiked the Great Pond Mountain(before we started the blog) but were not aware of this other section. A mix of clouds and hazy sun with rain forecast but not materializing. We started from the parking area on Rte.1 ,walking a short distance to the Esker Path


Which we took to the Hillside Trail and had this view of Great Pond Mountain

                                                                       
The Hill Path took us up Oak Hill and gave us this view

                                                                   
Then down the E. Ridge Path to the Flag Hill Trail and up that hill for more nice views

                                                                        

                                                                         

                                                                                            
We returned down that trail and on to the Hillside Trail which is a mix of woodland paths and old roads

                                                                

On to the Valley Road and back to our car. 3 -1/2 hours

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed hiking in the Wildlands! From North Gate the 5 mile round trip to Hothole Pond is popular. You can also go up Flying Moose Mt from North Gate in a similar distance. The path to the summit ledges isn't signed or on the map, but it's not too hard to find. Both of these walks are mostly on gravel roads.
