Pachaug East—Great Meadow Pond Loop

★★★  7.7 miles wow. longest hike yet. hike got off to an unpromising start when i couldn’t find the exact place to park, but got better. until, that is, i hit the muddy, dirt-bike ravaged part. then there were the 7000 puddles i had to detour around… okay, not my favorite hike. but not terrible.
