Pretty nice

Another place that was hard to find... there is no street address for a pond... but worth it once we arrived.

Across the tracks from the scenic railway and at the base of October Mountain State Park the boat launch is great for kayaking on Woods Pond and up the Housatonic River. Lots of wildlife and views up this peaceful spot. Kayaks can be rented at Arcadian shop or other places.
