This is a private trail that is open to the public, so please respect the private property.
From the road, climb steeply along a trail that is marked generously with arrows. A short steep climb will bring you to Billy's Bald Spot, where there is a lean-to to relax in as you overlook Big Moose Lake.
To reach Squash Pond, follow the abandoned trail that's located behind the privy in the tall evergreens. The footprint of the trail is narrow and obscured by time and lack of use. Take your time and in a half mile you will come to the shore of Squash Pond. The pond is a small, quaint little backcountry gem.
From the intersection of Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Eagle Bay, follow Big Moose Road. Continue for just under 6 miles, turn right on Martin Road, and follow that for 0.75 mile to the trailhead on the left. There is an obscure trailhead sign on the left which is hard to see. Drive slowly and park safely on the shoulder of the road as best as you can.
2.25 miles round trip
