This 0.6 trail starts at the Moose Mountain Trailhead and goes around the south end of Wheeler Pond to the Hadsel-Mares camp, owned and operated by The Green Mountain Club, located on the west side of Wheeler Pond. Please be respectful of cabin users.
Along the trail, hikers have a great view of Wheeler Pond with Wheeler Mountain in the background. At the outlet for Wheeler Pond, just before the cabin, hikers can turn left to climb the Gnome Stairs Trail, named so because of the small step-down falls on the side of the trail.
Hikers can loop back to the trailhead using the Wheeler Pond Road, or return on the trail.
For more information about the trails, visit the Green Mountain Club online, or contact:VT Dept. Forests, Parks & Recreation District 5: St. Johnsbury District
