Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Lots of parking at end of paved road used for Arethusa Falls, Ripley Falls and Ethan Pond Trail (AT. It does have a $5.00 Crawford Notch SP fee. Not sure if a WMNF decal would work for this. I used my National Parks Senior Pass and did not get ticketed.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Only one minor crossing of note. It was very easily negotiated. The small stream has lots of boulders upstream, so it should be a straightforward crossing, even in really high water conditions.

Comments
Comments: Did a short but challenging trip up Willey and back. I had never taken Ethan Pond below the Kendron Flume junction, so figured it was time to do it. As many know, the Willey Range Trail is very steep and difficult. Thankfully, the trails were in great shape. There was some water on the trail, but it was not a major problem, since the rocks were dry. Loose rocks required some care on the descent. Ladders were in decent shape.
