This pond is accessible either from Waterville Valley or east of Lincoln on the Kangamangus. It is a great spot nestled between the mountains. The trails have very easy grades and are suitable for all ages.

This is a small pond in the center of Waterville Valley. You can rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. There is also a small beach. Not a destination beach.
