Enter the main entrance of the park and stay left on Long Pond Road. At the end of the Long Pond Road you will come to a junction just before the beach. Turn left at this junction and travel along Long Pond. At 800 meters (150 meters past the end of Long Pond) you will see a small parking lot next to a picnic table and shelter on the left. The trail starts between the parking lot and the shelter.
The Bagley Trail is a nice walk through a small patch of forest between Long Pond and Great Pond. Part of the trail was underwater during our last visit but we could get around this section. The trail passes through an interesting stand of dead larch trees before coming to a junction. Here the trail splits to create a small loop near the end of the trail. The far end of the loop comes out to the edge of a bog along the back of Great Pond.
