Little Rock Pond
View Connector Trails
From the intersection of US Route 7 and Brooklyn Road in Danby/Mount Tabor, take Brooklyn Road east (National Forest Road 10) for 3.2 miles to a paved parking lot on the right. Start your hike near the sign board directly across the road from the parking lot.
Follow the Long Trail/Appalachian Trail (white blazes) north for 2.3 miles, passing Lula Tye Shelter and the south end of the Little Rock Pond Loop Trail, and skirting the east side of the Little Rock Pond to its outlet at its northern end. Return by the same route, or make a 7.5 mile loop hike by using the Green Mountain Trail.
The pond itself is the major point of interest. Hikers often stop here for a swim on a hot summer day. Several extensions to this hike are possible: The Little Rock Pond Trail, the Green Mountain Trail, the Long Trail North, and the Homer Stone Brook Trail all connect with your route near the north end of the pond. Elevation gain 350 feet.

Leave No Trace Principle
Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
