Description

Head up through the old growth forest along a low rise before the trail meanders down to a small bridge crossing. Take a left where the trail splits, following narrow singletrack onto a low rocky spine.

Moss covered ground, rock slabs, and the occasional glimpse of the pond provide plenty to look at. As the trail turns to the right it circles the west end of the pond on a earthen dam. There's a bench here to enjoy the pleasant setting before following the trail around this side of the pond to complete the loop.

Flora & Fauna

The pond is typically quite active with ducks, frogs, and dragonflies. Also, you may notice beaver activity at the north end of the pond.

Geneva Pond is an amazing place to see all kinds of ducks and other birds. I took this pic there a couple of years ago.
