Comments: Pom-Pom and I on this redlining adventure. Peaked Hill Pond Trail is nether signed nor marked at all at the gate. From the gate, the trail veers uphill and slightly left along a wide, massively washed out section of old road. You don't have to walk in the washout--there's a treadway along the right-hand side of it as you ascend. The washout section quickly disappears, turning in to pleasant woodland ramble that continues gently uphill most of the way to the pond.

Much of the hiking path follows skimobile trail. At forks, take the more obviously trodden path. (Obvious at least in summer where there's grass growing.) In a couple of places, there are wooden signs labeled "Peaked Hill Pond" with arrows to remove any doubt you might have.

The views at Peaked Hill Pond itself reminded me of the vistas you get in the Greeley Ponds area. We didn't explore much due to the bugs, although there was a camping spot at the trail terminus on the pond shore someone was using.
