Joe’s Pond

The Joe's Pond property consists of an 11.3 acre pond and wetland complex at the southern boundary bordered to the north by a 19+ acre mixed hardwood and softwood forest. The remainder of the property is an actively hayed agricultural field with frontage on Stancliff Road. A peaceful network of trails in the forest can be accessed by bearing right and following the yellow trail into the woods. Joe's Pond Trail Map and History brochure.

Public Access

Joe's Pond is open to the public for a number of non-motorized recreational activities including, but not limited to, hiking, hunting, birdwatching, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and nature study.

Trail Maps


Joe's Pond is located just over the Stowe line in Morristown. Heading north on Route 100 turn right onto Stancliff Road once across the town line. Travel .5 miles down Stancliff Road until you spot the Stowe Land Trust sign on your right. Park along Stancliff Road. Or, to access the boat launch, drive down the far left side of the hay field (between the property sign and the neighbor's house) and park in the lower left corner at treeline. The field is actively used for hay, so please take care not to deviate from the driveway access and to park at the far edge of the field.

I have hunted this area for grouse, rabbits and waterfowl and have formed an attachment and respect for keeping land open to all.Ron Stancliff, landowner
