Shoal Pond, Pemigewasset Wilderness – Shoal Pond is a secluded 5-acre pond in the Pemigewasset Wilderness in the New Hampshire White Mountains. The average depth is one foot with a max depth of three feet (source, NH Fish & Game). The definition of “Shoal” is an area of shallow water, so this is likely why the pond was given this name.
This serene pond located along the Shoal Pond Trail, off the Appalachian Trail, is one of the unique features of this 45,000-acre designated wilderness. The reflection of the forest and Mount Carrigain in the pond early in the morning is excellent! And it is a great place to view wildlife and / or camp near for a few days.
