Beaver Pond is a wonderful short hike for the day use visitors who may choose from a variety of activities including summer swimming, winter cross-country skiing, viewing both the stately Hyde Hall and an old covered bridge, picnicking, fishing and more. The trail begins from the large parking lot opposite the beach. It begins by the antiquated restroom. Notice that the trail has a stone surface which makes it handicapped accessible. It weaves around the pond through a thin woods of mixed hardwoods and conifers. Nearby open areas are great places for viewing the resident songbirds and white-tailed deer. Fox, blue-heron, skunks and porcupine occupy the land too. This trail may be combined with the Woodland Field Loop.
Directions: From Cooperstown, NY, Travel 8 miles north along Route 31 to the park entrance. After passing the ranger station, travel over the bridge and make your first right. Park in the large lot, left of Beaver Pond. The trail circles the pond.
