Greeley Ponds Scenic Area, Livermore – Located in Livermore, New Hampshire in between Mount Kancamagus and the East Peak of Mount Osceola is the Greeley Ponds Scenic Area. Designated a scenic area in 1964, this 810-acre parcel of land in the White Mountains contains mature hardwood forest and two scenic mountain ponds.

The two mountain ponds offer interesting photographic opportunities. And early in the morning a nice reflection of the Osceola Mountain range can be seen in the upper pond (above and below). And the forest surrounding the ponds consists of an interesting mix of hardwoods and softwoods.

From the trailhead on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway, outdoor enthusiasts hike the Greeley Ponds Trail for about 1.7 miles before reaching Upper Greeley Pond (above). The trail travels along the edge of the ponds making both ponds easily accessible. And both ponds have small sandy areas that are great for relaxing.

This is a great short hike to two beautiful remote ponds in the White Mountains. And I find during the autumn months when foliage is at peak the best time to visit this scenic area. The area also attracts cross country skiers and snowshoers during the winter months.
