Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Saturday, April 9, 2016
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We entered Connecticut from Rhode Island on Route 138 at the Exeter/Voluntown line. We took a left on Green Fall Road (sign), then found the first parking area we came to at the pond. We didn't have to pay a fee. I'm not sure if there is one in the summer. 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail 
Recommended Equipment

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There are bridges at the inlet and outlet of the Green Fall River at the pond. The outlet has a big dam. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trail is in good shape and it is blazed with blue/orange dot rectangles. Part of the loop also has blue blazes from other trail(s) in the Connecticut blue blazed trail system. The trail makes a loop around the pond, 1.85 miles long. Part of the loop route around the pond is on the dirt road. There are a whole lot of other trails to explore in this forest too. Probably the best known feature in the forest is Mt. Misery, elev. 441 ft. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Looks like fun guys. 
Bugs
Bugs: Gnats were flying but not really pestering in spots.

Comments
Comments: This is a beautiful place with a lot of recreational possibilities. It's not a busy season so we just saw a few people fishing and kayaking, and one tent in the campground. The summer must be busier but it's a big place in a lightly settled area so it probably has areas that are not crowded even then.
