Three Ponds Trailhead


The Three Ponds Trailhead offers many opportunities. Most popular is an easy 2.2 mile walk to the scenic middle pond and Three Ponds shelter. From this point an easy to moderate 5.3 mile loop back to the trailhead is possible via Donkey Hill Cut-off and the Kineo Trail. The Three Ponds trailhead is also the eastern access of the Carr Mountain trail. An interpretive panel of the area is available in the trailhead kiosk.
