Chapel Pond Trailhead

What They Are about

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.

Our Notes 

Due to peregrine falcon nesting activity some climbing routes are closed during the nesting season.
