The Shavertown Trail begins with a moderately difficult climb to a woods road. From there it climbs gently to a lovely pond and beautiful views of the mountains over the Pepacton Reservoir. Beyond the pond is a moderately easy hike to a short loop ending, followed by the return hike.
This will be one of the last opportunities to hike the full trail until late this year due to a planned forestry project that will necessitate closing the trail above the pond for several months.
