Just before the Connecticut line along Route 44 is a small Glocester Land Trust property that offers a few trails to Hawkins Pond. The pond itself is created by an earthen dam along Mary Brown Brook. The dam also has a spillway making for a nice waterfall. A lot has happened here at Hawkins Pond since my last visit. The nearly two miles of trails are now blazed and mapped making navigation much easier. The orange loop on the east side of the pond is traversed by a green blazed trail that leads to Pulaski Road. On the west side of the pond is the mile long pink blazed trail the reaches into the stretches of the woods. The dam offers a bench and there are remnants of yesteryear at the bottom of the dam. Saw some deer and a mink on the latest hike and there is evidence of beavers.
