Little Cherry Pond Trail
Little Cherry Pond National Recreation Trail — The one-mile nature trail begins on an ice push rampart at the edge of Cherry Pond, a natural 100 acre pond teeming with wildlife and offering spectacular views of the Presidential Range of the White Mountains. At the end of the trail at Little Cherry Pond, there is a viewing platform where moose, beaver, otter, waterfowl, and osprey are often seen.
The Little Cherry Pond Trail provides a fascinating walk through the heart of the Silvio O. Conte National Wildlife Refuge. It winds through six different forest communities including: Black Spruce, Tamarack, Matrix, Balsam Fir Flat, Aspen, and Black Spruce-Tamarack Boreal Bog (designated 2006).
