Martin Ponds (Baxter State Park)
Martin Ponds in the southeast part of Baxter State Park can be reached by a 2.3 mile relatively easy undulating hike. I did the hike this week after work one night, arriving at the pond shortly before sunset. I had hoped (as I do every time I visit Baxter) to see a moose but didn't, although I did see a significant amount of moose scat on the trail itself. It was a beautiful night for a hike, with Katahdin clearly visible across the pond.
