Kettle Pond Trailhead is located at a turn-out on VT-232, 6.5 miles south of US-2 in Marshfield and 7 miles north of US-302 in Groton.


This moderate walk goes around secluded Kettle Pond. The trail leaves the parking lot off VT-232 and travels a short distance west before dividing. The left spur continues to a dock at the water's edge. Stay right for the loop trail. At the far south end of the pond the trail is rocky and wet. After traveling the perimeter of the pond, the trail travels past the Kettle Pond Group Camping Area and another boat launch, returning to VT-232 along the gravel campground road. Travel a short distance north along the shoulder of VT-232 to return to the parking lot.
