Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I visited Thorne Pond in Bartlett, New Hampshire. Thorne Pond is a conservation trail, approximately one mile in the length. The trail circles the Pond, however, has side trails that lead to the Saco River.
We were excited to find Thorne Pond, as although I was not planning a visit on this particular day, we could not resist a new adventure. Thorne Pond is a simple trail, adorned with beautiful wild flowers, and mountain views. We began following the trail, locating paths down to the Pond along trail. I was ecstatic to find some hidden trails on the far side of the pond that led over to the Saco River. Although I guess not technically hidden, I did not realize that River views would also be included in this summer day adventure. We journeyed down the River edge for a bit before turning around and heading back to the Pond. We saw some other visitors, including some fishermen along the River’s edge, however did not find the location to be highly populated. We left feeling content, and relaxed from our time at Thorne Pond (Rating: 3).
