Little East Pond Trail

  Discovered/walked the East Pond/Little East Pond Loop trail on 5/23/10 while camping at nearby Russell Pond Camp Ground. We were 2 guys in our late 50's, with two dogs, who were able to run unleashed the whole time. There was no need to pack water for them, because in addition to the 2 ponds, there were ample mountain streams (1 about every 10 minutes.)Actual hiking time took about 3 hours. I would recommend Little East Pond first, because it is smaller,
    with no good shoreline to sit and rest. East Pond is much larger, and it's all downhill from there. Many fallen trees on trails from storms. Also of note: Small area of snow at East Pond. (About 5ft x 20ft.)

East Pond Trail hikes to one of the most pleasant view in the White Mountain National Forest. It is an easy one hour hike to a spot where you can stop to make a cup of tea or soup.  You can also continue on your way the Kanc on the other side of SCar Ridge

When was the last time you got out in nature a bit? Little East Pond Trail in Grafton County, New Hampshire is a good choice. There are many wonderful hiking trails in the White
Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains. Hiking here in New Hampshire is a must.
Little East Pond Trail is a long drive away from Laconia but it is a good trail. There's some flowing water close by, East Pond Brook is a stream you can stop at while you're here.
