In addition to the stream, I decided to explore what appeared to be a canoe trail connecting Hermon Pond to two smaller ponds (see map below). However, the southern pond felt like it was right in someone's backyard, and the north end was blocked off.
During my trip I observed a bald eagle and heard a loon calling out.
Here is a map of my trip.
