Forge Pond – Westport

  • Forge Pond Conservation Area
  • Forge Road, Westport, MA
  • Trailhead: 41°37’53.43″N, 71° 3’14.15″W
  • Last Time Hiked: July 19, 2014
  • Approximate distance hiked: 0.7 miles
  • Easy with some elevation.

 

Upon our arrival at Forge Pond we were immediately drawn to the dam and waterfall near the parking area. After taking a look at it we ventured into the woods following the yellow blazed trail that runs near the edge of the pond. The trail offered a few areas that came to the shore of the pond. There is a large boulder “outlook” where the Noquochoke River meets Forge Pond. After taking a few photos we continued following the yellow trail for a bit passing an area with several dragonflies before coming across some ruins. We then made our way to the blue blazed trail which climbs up a hill and loops back to the yellow trail. From here we retraced our steps back to the car.
