Today my sons and I ventured out to Jackson Beach and Hermon Pond Park in Hermon. When we arrived at the park, the gate at the top of Jackson Beach Road was closed, so we walked in.
Jackson Beach is a town park which features a beach, picnic areas, a small dock and boat launch (during the summer season) and bathroom facilities, and is located on Hermon Pond. There is a short path that leads along the shoreline between the beach and the boat ramp.
Ordinarily when the gate is open this would only be a short walk along the shoreline, but with the gate closed it added to the hike. Here is a map of our walk.
