Trail Overview

This easy-going one-lane trail winds along the pond which is large like its namesake. There are a few potholes and mud puddles to navigate but nothing strenuous. You will cross a small bridge that has a campsite to its left that can accommodate up to 2-3 vehicles. To the right, there is a lovely little waterfall. Just past the bridge is another area with a picnic area that can accommodate a few vehicles. There is also a vault toilet available for use near the picnic area. You can continue on Rinker Ridge Road or this could be your dispersed camping destination.


There are a few potholes that can be jarring but nothing to serious.
