4/25/14 Hidden Ponds

 Old map modified to show changes made- the red sections are no longer maintained and do not appear on the newer maps. The trails can still be hiked and the trail to Tilden is in good shape and easy to follow.

This map was given to me by another hiker- he has added old trails, including the trail to Spring River Lake

Last two days were rainy so we were ready for a nice day. Mostly sunny, temps from mid 40's to mid 50's. and a bit breezy.

It was very nice to see a trail without snow or ice - near the start

We followed the trail to Tilden Pond and then continued along the pond to near it's end

where there is a little path down to the pond

or an old woods road/trail to Spring River Lake. Parts of this trail are wet ( we have found it so even in summer) but there is a small bypass around the wettest section.

We then retraced our steps back to the new Loop Trail . you can see Salmon Pond through the trees before you come to Little Long Pond

Continuing on we passed a small stream coming out of the rocks

and then Salmon Pond

A  good hike on a beautiful day. We only saw a couple of tiny patches of snow and Kelley enjoyed all the water. We met no one during the three hours of the hike.


  1. Beautiful photos of the lake - so clear and clean.

    Hold onto that old map - those are a treasure to find.

    1. Thanks, Kim. Yes, he gave me another of a nearby area. He had found many of those old trails himself.

    1. It is Dusty- and Tunk is not to be missed- some of the best views around. The trail up from here is too difficult for Kelley so we do it from Myrick Pond Rd.
