If you’re looking for a fun and easy trail that you can enjoy at any time of the year with the whole family then you should check out the Clear Pond Trail in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness near North River.
This trail is close to Gore Mountain if you are vacationing there. It’s relatively flat, with only 275 feet of elevation gain, but it’s quiet and relaxed and you’ll be able to enjoy great views the entire way. It’s an out-and-back trail so you’ll have to return the same way that you came, but you’ll see plenty of wildflowers and other beauty so you certainly won’t mind. Read on to learn more about this fun and simple trail.
This is a great trail that anyone can enjoy on any day of the year. If you want to get out into the wilderness but you don’t want to go too far, and you want to experience an easy hidden gem, then the Clear Pond Trail is for you!
