Line Pond might be more appropriately called Line Puddle. It is tiny.

Start on the Pomfret Road, going north out of Woodstock. About 50 yards south of the Pomfret town house, on the left, is Stage Road. Take Stage Road all the way into Barnard. The road will fork at a place where there is a very lonely cemetery with about fifteen graves in it, called the Perkins Cemetery (it has a little, but visible, sign). The left fork is Stage Road. The left fork is Line Pond Road. Go a few hundred yards. Line Pond is on the right. A power line hangs across the pond, from south to north which mars it some, and requires that you maneuver a bit to find a good angle. I got there the first morning we had a hard frost around here, and the tall grass around the pond was thick with frost.

minnesotaman: when are you and your wife in Woodstock? I'm there 10/1 and 10/2 with bm. If you are around we could meet at the Worthy Kitchen for lunch or dinner. Just let me know. It's possible you are starting out in the Whites but I couldn't find it in any posts. I'm leaving Monday a.m. the 3rd to meet Carol in Barton for a week. Hope we can get together finally......

Depending on conditions, I plan to be in the Whites, around Stark, NH, or in the NEK, on the 1st and 2nd. I generally get back to Woodstock by 6 every day. I would be happy to join you guys for dinner on either day. Unfortunately my wife will not arrive until later in the month, when the color comes south. She thinks six or more hours a day in the car all the way to Canada and back is lunacy, especially when I start before the sun is up.

Minn: great, we are usually done by 6 as well. One of the days we are hiking Mt Tom summit in the morning and then cruising around some of the back roads in the area. We'll be in touch probably the night before. If you have a better place for dinner, casual and local works best. The Worthy Kitchen just outside of Taftsville might be an option. Woodstock will be insane. Any places in Quechee would do as well. My inn is in Taftsville.... bm is staying nearby as well. Would be fun to get together after so many years on the forum!

ct/bm
great to see you guys.
if you are looking for lunch today try the creamery, in town. it may be overwhelmed, however, if it is raining--the tourist buses dump people out at the green and they end up standing in line to eat.
if the line there is too long the next best option is the woodstock farmer's market just west of town on rte 4. they have very good sandwiches and soup for take out (no place to eat inside), cookies, cake etc. they also have a lot of local produce, including a wide selection of local apples.
