North Shield Pond Trail Reviews

As the description says you definitely see pretty wildflowers, even in the winter. It's a very flat trail with no elevation, making it a great hike for all levels. Dog friendly, benches along trail, and even a picnic area at the beginning. However, I would not recommend this trail between January - May when the snow is melting. Because it is so flat, the water doesn't really have anywhere to go. Probably the muddiest / slickest trail I've experienced in the area. Even with good hiking shoes on, we found ourselves slipping frequently. Just something to keep in mind.
