Mud Lake to Little Lost Pond loop

This is a multi-day trip that should only be undertaken with proper gear and a well-fitted pack. There are lean-tos along the way, but they are available on a first-come, first-served basis only. This trip requires a good trail map, which is a must when hiking in such remote locations. Leave word about your trip plans with others before you hike. Maps are available at the Inlet Information Office.


The trailhead is a 13-mile drive in from the Limekiln entrance to the Moose River Plains Wild Forest in Inlet. Drive 9.1 miles to the big T intersection, then turn right and continue on Otter Brook Road as it crosses the Moose River and Otter Brook bridges before reaching the Falls Pond parking area on left. The access road has a gravel and dirt surface.


This is a 34 mile round trip in a Wilderness Area. No mountain bikes are allowed.

Backpackers can expect this trek to take several days to complete. Know your abilities before setting out and always let someone know where you're going before setting out.
