This end-to-end hike, only 1.1 miles one way, runs from from Courtney Pond to Shingletree Pond along a clear, well-maintained trail with minor elevation changes. It is full of lovely terrain, with the exception of a tunnel that runs under the Northway. The narrow path goes from the Hammond Pond Wild Forest tract to the Dix Mountain Wilderness. You'll also pass by Holiday Pond, though there is no official path down to the water.
Shingletree Pond is a reclaimed trout pond, so the use of fish as bait is illegal.
Getting there: the trailhead is located on Route 9, 0.2 miles south of the Sharp Bridge Campground. Courtney Pond is located right beside the road, so it is not easily missed. Park at a small roadside lot next to Courtney Pond.
