Grout Pond Recreation Area is 1,600 acres of the Green Mountain National Forest set aside for year-round recreation. Grout Pond is a very popular destination for camping, hiking, canoeing, and fishing. Over 10.0 miles of multipurpose trails are available through relatively flat, low-lying terrain. The trails are marked with blue diamond blazes, are available for year-round hiking, but can be extremely wet and muddy at times. Trails connect with a more extensive trail system of nearby Somerset Reservoir. In winter, the trails are open to ungroomed skiing and are rated easy to more difficult.
