Overview

Join AMC SEM Chapter Open House event with the Friends of Myles Standish at Myles Standish State Forest in Plymouth for an Intermediate Hike to Cherry Pond. All events will begin from the Headquarters on Cranberry Rd where there is plenty of free parking. Also, FREE LUNCH for all Open House participants! Cherry Pond is a scenic little pond north of College Pond in Myles Standish State Forest. An unmarked trail leads to Cherry Pond and continues into a valley running east and west for a mile. The trail returns via a tall pine plantation. This hike is only about 3 miles but if we get going on time, we can easily add another mile or two. We will have about a 5 minute carpool from headquarters to the hike start.
