duck pond

I was hoping to find some ducklings at Ponkapaug, but I didn't see any waterfowl at all. I took a little detour over to Duck Pond, which is to the east of the main pond, but there was nothing there either! It was a nice spot to sit for a while, though. Except for the traffic noise from nearby Rt 24.

I can't recommend this trail, at the moment. There's a project under way to improve a dam to the west of the pond, and the trail has been rerouted through a golf course for at least a mile. I couldn't help but have the feeling that I was intruding as I walked past all the golfers teeing up. Golf and hiking do not mix well.
