Horseshoe Pond is located a few miles south east of the 271/ RT 303 exit. Check your maps before heading out.

After exiting you car head down the gravel path to the wooden lookout you will be making a left at the pond. We spotted a few turtles sunning themselves on a log.

Pass over another wooden platform and onto the wooden bridge through the pine forest. At the end of the bridge check out the huge pine tree near the lakes edge. The "wee's" loved a Kodak moment perched in the branches!

Now turn around and go back over the brodge. Stop where the bridge bends (1/2 way). Look out into the pines, if you're in the right spot you should be looking through two pines of equal size. Walk straight out throught these two pines and continue walking as straight as you can for about 85 single footfalls. You should be near the end of the pines now and in front of 3 rougher barked trees in a row. To the right is a downed tree and a short stump. It is in this downed tree you will find a buck settled down to rest.
