Distance:6.5 to 7 MILES
Time Duration 3 to 3 .5hours
Blaze Orange required
This is one of the nicer hikes we do with a great finish through the gorge. We are going to add Yawgoog Pond to the mix. The hike is approximately 7 miles and we will hike at a moderate pace so it should take us about to 3-3 1/2 hours to complete. The mileage might actually be a little longer depending upon which ponds we hike around. The trail will lead us around the West side of Yawgoog Pond then North by the ledges, some old mill ruins and eventually into Connecticut around Green Falls Pond. The waterfalls and the the gorge are next as we had south. For anyone that hasn't done this hike I promise you the gorge will not disappoint. We will then return down a dirt road for about 1 1/2 to 2 miles back to the parking lot. If the water levels are low it will take away some of the beauty of the falls and gorge but this will still be a very nice hike . Good foot ware is required and we will hike at a moderate pace. Please bring plenty of water , food and insect repellent. Please wear blaze orange for safety ..
See you Saturday ,
