Our Experience hiking Pemetic Trail in Winter
We parked at the Jordan Pond House, and did a road walk to the trailhead for Pemetic Mountain. The Park Loop road was closed the day we did it, in Winter, but it’s a good option for parking all season. During the summer, it’s one of the best hikes from Jordan Pond. We did the North and South Ridge trails on Pemetic Mountain and then did the Jordan Pond Loop back to the car. It was a great hike, with stellar views.
