Harmon pond

Harmon Pond is the destination for this walk.

To walk to lovely Harmon Pond, you could start at Sweet Brook Road, but then you’d only have about 1/3 of a mile to go, parking is limited and you’d miss a mess of major trees. For about a mile walk, begin instead at Margaret Lindley Park.
