    It sounds like the first camp site is quite close to the gate because you wrote “At 0.85 miles, we reached the second campsite”, is this correct?

    Any more insight on how to access Barnes Pond? I know you said you didn’t visit the pond. Still searching online for bikers/campers that have visited this pond.

    Thanks for your time,

    Jessica, I have not been back to the area since writing that article. If you’re hiking, the pond is almost due south from the register. If you bike to the end of the good road, the pond will be almost due west.
