Cooler today ( 60's ) -supposed to be sunny but there were also a lot of clouds, sometimes making it gray. We started from the lot on Rte. 182 . I have added the newer Loop Trail to the map. We continued on the trail past it- marked "no longer maintained" but in good shape and easy to follow. If you skip this you miss Tilden Pond and the trail to the lake.On our return we did do the Loop Trail but skipped going to Mud Pond. On our way out we met a family but no one else the rest of the hike.
About 5 minutes into the hike
At the end of Tilden we took the short trail to Spring River lake- this trail has several wet spots, the worst sections can be avoided with a side loop.
Kelley liked the lake too
Little Long Pond
A good hike in spite of the clouds and an increase in mosquitoes. 3 hours
