Trail Overview

This trail to Greenwood Pond starts at the Katahdin Iron Works Historic Site which is also the Ki-Jo Mary check-in point for the Northern Maine Woods. The trail is all dirt roads typically wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass, but roughly 2/3rds of the way the trail becomes a bit narrower and in some cases just wide enough for 1 vehicle. There are a couple of wooden bridge crossings on the way up and at the very end, you can drive through a small waterway (less than a foot deep during our trip) to get a bit closer to the actual Pond. Once you get to the end there is about a 200-meter walk to the pond itself. The trail takes about an hour each way and there are a couple of nice open vistas along the way. In the end, there were a couple of abandoned boats at the water's edge that one might use for fishing.
