You will notice a brown sign marking the start of the Duck Pond Multi-Use Trail on the left side of the road (before the gate). On the right side of the road, opposite the sign, three yellow blazes on a tree mark the start of the yellow-blazed Bear Claw Trail. Follow this trail through a pleasant second-growth forest, crossing a number of stone walls – evidence that this area was once farmed....
