The pond is great to cool off in. Although it's COLD. A quick little paddle around the pond is also relaxing. Nice sand beach as well.

This is a small pond in the center of Waterville Valley. You can rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. There is also a small beach. Not a destination beach.

We knew there was boating (Kayaks, canoes, paddle boats and SUP), but did not know how small the pond really is. Nice for a short trip, but do not go planning on spending a long time boating.

The rating applies to past hikes. The Waterville Valley access to this trail was severely damaged by Tropical storm Irene. Repairs are ongoing but the trail is closed. In the past this was a beautiful hike out to some secluded ponds. The trail was relatively easy and followed a stream that had some bridge crossings. I look forward to the... More

The area is beautiful! and there is a lot for everyone to do year round. The condo's location was great, but the interior shabby and not clean.

We swam in the pond- very clean- sandy beach! We boated every day! Canoes and kayaks were readily available.

The trail is not open all the way to the Pond from the Waterville Valley side. It is an easy trail. (unless you cross the water (difficult-never done it without getting wet) and take the trail to Scaur.

I would not hike in to the pond. It's kind of far and there is no beach or really anywhere to sit or wade. I enjoy and recommend mountain biking in IF you can handle a challenging rugged, root-filled trail. The ride up is tough but the downhill is a hoot!

This is a kid friendly easy hike that includes a swim able pond. On hot weekend days it can be crowded but mid week you might have the pond to yourself

A classic backcountry ski. Holds the snow well. Although you park at the XC center, you don't have to pay a trail fee. If asked, just tell them you are skiing to Greeley Pond.
