Hammond & Bloody Pond Trail

Hike them both or just one. Either way, these two ponds are attractive destinations. They are definitely not all day adventures, but make for a good place to stretch your legs.

How to get there

The trailhead is shared with the Challis Pond Trail. From Moriah, head west on Ensign Pond Road. The trailhead will be on the left after about 10.0 miles.

By the numbers

It's an easy 2 miles round trip to Hammond Pond, and 3.8 miles round trip to Bloody Pond. 


The trail follows a stream through forested hills. After 0.7 miles, there is a fork. Left goes to Hammond Pond, right follows along the shore of Hammond Pond and continues on to Bloody Pond.
