This trail is very popular in the summer. It can get very rowdy and uncomfortable if you are looking for a quiet place to hike or enjoy the pond. After heavy rain, the trail is impassable at the north end.
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. The trail is marked with white blazes and some placards. At the north end, the trail shares the path of the Terrace Pond North Trail.
