Damon Pond in the Willard Brook State Forest is a nice place to stop and take a short break during a drive in northcentral Massachusetts. There’s a short walk along the beach and a cute covered pedestrian bridge across Willard Brook.

The pond is a popular place for swimming in the summer. The changing colors of the trees is a scenic treat in the fall.
