I thought this was a great idea, Snookman, so I renamed it to "Vermont Ponds and Lakes" and made it a "sticky" thread. Hope we can keep it to the narrow topic of good ponds and lakes and directions to get there, etc.!

Owl's head overlook....WOW! That photo is stunning. How do I get there? Is that a hike or is that view from the road?

edit: nevermind I think I found the directions in an old thread:

"About a mile south of the New Discovery Road look for a sign for Owls Head and a road on the left side nearby. Drive that road to the parking lot and hike the ΒΌ mile trail to the mountain top. "

Yep: You found it. Climb is short, but steep. Worth every breath. Gate to road opens at 9:00 a.m. and closes at sunset.

i did accually mean to say Job's Pond. I was trying to disscribe both ponds but forgot to separate the paragraphs. If you are in the Island Pond area, you should try to do both ponds. you will have to bear with me. Hurricane Ctyanky is due to hit VT tomorrow. :D

Folks, pictures are really awesome! Would like to recommend a note or comment be included as to not only where but also when the pictures were taken. Many will be relying on this great Forum for guidance and may be misled to believing that the pictures are current whereas some of the pictures go back in years.

Good point, Aspen. I went back and edited mine and put the year and date. Maybe as time permits, I'll go back again and put some more detailed directions in.
