This pond is accessible either from Waterville Valley or east of Lincoln on the Kangamangus. It is a great spot nestled between the mountains. The trails have very easy grades and are suitable for all ages.

There's nothing really amazing about this pond. It's the trip there that's the best part. Great views of nature along the way. I also wouldn't swim in Greeley Pond. I believe it does have leeches. Might be a good place to fish though. In any...More

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.
