Chapel Pond Trailhead
Nestled in the Rocky Peak Ridge, with a sandy beach on the east end, Chapel Pond is a great place for swimming, relaxing or cooling off after a nice hike. Small enough to swim across. The Essex County Fish Hatchery regularly stocks about 300 2-year-old rainbow trout each year. The majority of the routes in this region are multi-pitched climbs that do not lend themselves to instructional groups. Rock climbing concentrates use to a very small area and often has disproportionate amount of physical impact at sites-please maintain respect for your surroundings and those that wish to enjoy them in the future. Stick to the existing herd paths to climbs.
