Island Pond and Long Pond

I've read with interest several trip reports by Tick Magnet about Island and Long Pond. I'm interested in hiking into both of them. I know you can also approach it from the Lily Pond area as there is a sign indicating a trail to Island Pond.

I have a few questions for anyone who has been in this area:

1) Is there a marked parking area on Padanarum Spur or do you pull off to the side of the road?

2) It appears the trail from Padanarum Spur to Long Pond has a detour around wet spots. Is the detour route fairly visible or should I expect a bushwhack?

3) Is the trail from Grassville Road to Island Pond an easier way to approach Island Pond?
