Shippee Sawmill Pond – Foster


This lesser known State property is more known for its fishing than trails, but there are trails here nonetheless. At the time of this hike none of the trails were blazed and there was defined loop. All the trails were out and back either dead ending or crossing onto private property. To explore the trails park by the green gate. The trails run west from the gate and split almost immediately at a small pond. The trail to the left climbs uphill and seems to just vanish after a bit. The trail to the right of the pond heads north and eventually leaves State property. There is a spur off this trail on the right where you can catch a glimpse of the back side of Shippee Sawmill Pond. For a good view of the pond and dam with waterfall, follow the dirt road north to a parking area. There is a short trail to the right of the parking area that brings you to the dam. Exploring all of the trails out and back will give you a walk of just over a mile.
