            Bear Paw Pond: Park in the small gravel parking area on the right. Please do not block the walking lanes leading to the Trails building
            or to the open grassy area. To start your hike, walk up the gravel driveway that leads to Bear Bear Pond and Coyote Meadow
            which is beyond the pond. Please respect this private property and the adjoining neighbors.

            You may park on either side of the Rossier Road before the entrance to the High Ponds Farm. Do not block the gate.

            When you enter the property, turn left on the level gravel drive. This is the Beaver Ponds Trail. This trail passes through
            the lower orchard area and comes to a small beaver pond. Follow the gravel road past the small pond. You will come to a Y junction.
            The trail to the right is the Beaver Ponds Trail. It will take you to a picnic area with a nice view of the Moosewood Ponds.
            The trail eventually joins the Sugar House Trail which leads to the Bear Paw Pond area.

            At the Y junction the gravel road leading left is the High Meadow Trail. This leads to a picnic area at the back of the High Meadow
            with a good view. Use the High Meadow Trail to return to your car.

Special Thanks

  The Hazen's Notch Association is very grateful to all of our cooperating landowners whose generosity allows over 40 miles of trails to remain open to the public on 2,500 acres of private land.  Thank you !

Group Visits

  Please note that while the HNA Trails are open to the public at no charge in the summer, a fee is charged for groups. This includes school, home school, church or other community groups. This includes both non-profit and for-profit groups and whether your visit is self-directed or facilitated by HNA staff.

  There are many costs associated with the management of trails that are open to the public. Group use fees and membership contributions help the HNA office to meet these expenses. Please contact the HNA office to arrange your group visit.   Thank you.
