View Full Version : Is Branch Pond Trail in Lye Brook Wilderness still flooded (VT)

The last time I hiked from Bourn Pond to the AT/LT junction there was some beaver activity that had flooded a section of trail. That was about three years ago. I think it was along Bourn Brook. I was wondering if anyone had been through that section recently and could give me an update on conditions. Thanks.

If anyone is curious as to the answer to this,,, yes, it is still flooded.
The good news is there is a relatively new trail (nicely cut and blazed)that allows you to circumvent the flooded area.

Thanks for this - I'll be headed out there this weekend. Heading in via Lye Brook, staying at one of the Bourn campsites, and heading out via Branch Pond/Long Trail/roads. Anything else of note on that route? Planning on fishing Bourn Pond.

Nothing new to report - trails weren't as boggy as expected even after heavy rains Saturday.
