Does not matter what time of year there is always something intersting to see when visiting the pond even if you do not have energy to walk all the way round.

A nice walk. Interesting history. In summer weather I expect It gets busy. It's just over 2.5 miles to walk the longest path. Easy to walk no need to walk up slopes act and solid paths. Lots of places to look out on the lake....More
