8/25/13 Hidden Ponds

Another beautiful day. A friend accompanied us on this one. There is a new map but it leaves off the trails that are no longer maintained so I have modified an old one. The trail is an easy one for Kelley as it is mostly fairly level woods walking.

When we reached the new Loop Trail and this sign

we continued on toward Tilden Pond- this trail is in very good shape and easy to follow and takes you to Tilden Pond  which you would otherwise miss.

 And , of course, Kelley found places to get in the water

there are other trails and old woods roads along and away from the pond and we explored them briefly before turning back to take the Loop Trail. That took us by Salmon ,but there is not easy access from that side, and on to Little Long Pond

We took a small detour to Mud Pond and found a nice spot for lunch before completing the loop and then heading back. In all we met two men hiking- and talked trails with them- and then a couple with a friendly dog and that made Kelley happy. A very nice hike on a near perfect day. 3  1/2 hours.
