Ducktail and Partridge Ponds, Amherst Mountains Community Forest

The Amherst Mountains Community Forest is a 4,974 acre public lands parcel with trails, campsites and forestland surrounding six ponds in Amherst, Maine.  It is co-managed by the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, the Town of Amherst and the Forest Society of Maine.

My son and I hiked to Ducktail and Partridge Ponds today.  The trails were well-maintained, heavily forested and offered a feeling of solitude (we saw only one other group of people during our entire time at the forest.)  Both ponds have small campsites.

Here is a map of our hike.  Overall this was a great hike and highly recommended.
