Tillinghast Pond Management Area

4.15 miles   ★★★★

nice hike, nice day, if a little cool. i got to wear my brand-new blaze orange fleece vest, so cool was fine with me. first time i’ve been here alone, and it was actually prettier than i remembered. did 2 of the 3 loops, but i was under some time constraints, or i’d have done all 3 major loops.
