Need to Know
Trails can be very wet.
From Warwick Road, parking at the northernmost road side parking area, cross the road, and the trail begins as a steady climb until you gain a ridge that offers some great views for several miles. Eventually, you'll reach a powerline where you turn right. Keep an eye out when to re-enter the forest on the left. Once back in the forest, follow the trail until you reach Terrace Pond. Turn left and follow the white-blaze trail of the Terrace Pond Circular Trail
Terrace Pond has some great rock outcroppings with views of the pond, both on the east and west sides. The east side is more exposed. The south end of the loop has no views of the pond and can be difficult to find. At the north end, the trail shares the path of the Terrace Pond North Trail
. Once around the lake, rejoin the Terrace Pond North Trail
and follow until the trail ends on Clinton Road.
This is also the start of the Terrace Pond South Trail
. It can be very wet after rain or snow melt and, in many spots, it is a rocky tough hike. Turn left and follow the yellow blazes past a swamp area that is typically full of water with several beaver mounds. There are not many views along this trail. It ends at the Terrace Pond Circular Trail
. This is an alternate route to the pond to avoid crowds as many take the Terrace Pond North Trail
from the same trailhead. Follow the Circular Trail to the right which will get you back to the Terrace Pond North Trail
. Turn right when you reach Terrace Pond North Trail
and follow the trail back to your car.
