This is a wonderful well-traveled route for this area of the park primarily because it leads to five different fishing ponds. If you begin heading southwest from Trout Brook Farm Campground and loop east, the trail will be saddled by High Pond on the north and Long Pond on the south. Campsites available. Round Pond is next and much smaller. Farther up the trail will be Billfish Pond which also has a campsite. Heading back north you will come to the Littlefield Pond which is fed by Littlefield Brook. Here, too, is a campsite. Along this 5.6 mile path you will have to cross several fast-moving brooks and negotiate some rocky sections. The trail actually circles Trout Brook Mountain, elevation 1,767. At the southwestern edge of the trail, Middle Fowler Trail intersects offering access to Lower Fowler Pond, Middle Folwer Pond and more campsites. Middle Fowler Trail travels west into the South Branch Area.
