Sunfish Pond

Sunfish Pond, Worthington State Forest (11/25/2007)
This 4.5-mile circuit hike begins at the Douglas Trail parking lot on Old Mine Road. Take the blue-blazed Douglas Trail south up the mountain to its end, where it meets the AT. Make a left on the AT and pass an extensive backpacker site on the left. Continue along the AT hiking the northern shore of Sunfish Pond. We took lunch overlooking the pond at its eastern tip via a short jaunt on the Turquouise trail. Continue heading east on the AT, making a left on the orange-blazed Garvey Springs trail all downhill back to the parking lot.
