The Icehouse Pond Trail is an accessible trail that travels 0.45 miles from Otter Brook Road to an accessible fishing spot next to the pond. There are two campsites along the trail near the pond, one is an accessible camping site (campsite 81).  There is also an open air privy that is also accessible. 

This hike is very easy and can be enjoyed by all members of your family.  The toughest part of this hike is making it to the small parking area off Otter Brook Road in the remote Moose River Plains Wild Forest.  The parking area is marked as campsite 81, which is 0.4 miles north of the South Branch of the Moose River and 0.8 miles south on Otter Brook Road from Moose River Plains Road.  The junction of Otter Brook Road is 8.3 miles from the western entrance and 12.9 miles from the eastern entrance to the Moose River Plains Road.  Campsite 81 is actually located down the trail near the pond. 

The trail is an easy and pleasant walk to the pond with a minimal elevation change.  The only down side on the trail that we see is the vegetation may over take the trail quickly if it's not cut back on a regular basis.  When you reach the first campsite, which is the accessible site, turn left to reach other campsite within a few feet and then descend to the pond.  To the right is the trail that leads to the open air privy.

Look below for a few pictures, a video and a map of this hike.  This hike is more of a short leg stretcher.  Try camping in the area at one of themany primitive sites and explore the hiking trails in the area.
