  • Hi Everyone , . Long Pond is a great hike .  With anywhere between 4 and 5.5 miles  depending on if we decide to walk on the the road for the complete hike  .Please allow 2 1/2 to 3  hours. The book states 3 to 4 hours but I have never come close to that.   It is considered a strenuous hike at least the first and last mile as stated in Ken Weber 's " Walks and Rambles ".  This a great little hike with a lot to offer. With some nice outcroppings , mountain laurel and from what is said the tallest rhododendrons in the state . Sorry they are not in bloom at this time .What I find particularly interesting are the piles of rocks or cairns  that are scattered about in one section. Alien landing zone ? ancient burial ground or just a pile of rocks.Lol. Please keep in mind this a good work out . Good boots are must as well, water and food  . If you  are not  use to a moderate pace hike please do not sign up for this hike. Please wear blaze orange for safety . We will carpool from the Park And Ride . Volunteers needed.  It is about a 10 minute  ride to the trail head .

    See you Saturday ,

    This hike never disappoints - the rewards are a great payoff for the challenging climbs. Always beautiful, and even more so with the feel of Spring in the air. Can't wait to go back when everything is in bloom! Great day Tony.
