This is another very short hike. It is more of a walk then a hike, as much of the path is a wide, double-lane path. Cheescoate Pond is a very serene and scenic pond with a path around the lake. The fall foliage was already starting so I made sure to get some good pictures. I parked on Cheescoate Lane, a short cul-de-sac in the new expensive housing development, where a path at the Cul de sac leads to the pond. The Long Path skirts along the south part of the pond. I took the path around the lake and then headed back to the car.
