Five Mile Lean To/Gull Pond/Spectacle Pond Mar 18

We did a weekend away for my wife's birthday weekend and got some great hiking in. We are still new to snowshoeing so Five Mile Lean To was a good chance for us to test a little elevation. Gull and Spectacle Ponds were great hikes, especially because we had them all to ourselves. Gull was beautiful and is amazing for such a short hike, I'd like to try and do an overnight there this summer.

Good stuff!

The woods still look pretty good.

Thanks for sharing.

For a fun & easy off-trail through route try Gull Pond to Harrison Marsh to Shanty Bottom Brook to the Spectacle Pond trail, or vice versa.
