A beautiful day- a good day for the ponds- woods and water. The above map is the old one which shows the sections no longer maintained and the new loop trail.
Kelley did not used to like bog bridges but uses them now
We continued on the no longer maintained section to Tilden Pond. The trail is well used and in excellent condition as shown here.
At Tilden we backtracked to the loop trail which passes near Little long Pond

The trail up Tunk is too difficult for Kelley ( we usually do it from Myrick Pond Road which is easier) but decide to go part way up. We were soon at a rocky part Kelley was having a problem with and while trying to solve it met a nice couple and their dogs. They went ahead and with a boost from me we got over the obstacle. Kelley immediately raced ahead and hiked with the people and their dogs who had passed us. They stopped near the iron rungs and we talked trails and then they went ahead and we went back down.
We did get this nice view from the trail- click twice for larger view
After lunch at Salmon Pond we headed back to our car and saw this nice grass on the way
An enjoyable outing on a very nice day. 3 3/4 hours
