Join the Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club for an open house event with the Friends of Myles Standish and an intermediate hike to Cherry Pond. Meet at the forest headquarters on Cranberry Road, where there is plenty of free parking.
Cherry Pond is a scenic little pond north of College Pond in Myles Standish State Forest. An unmarked trail leads to Cherry Pond and continues into a valley running east and west for a mile. The trail returns via a tall pine plantation. This hike is only about 3 miles but if the group gets get going on time, they can easily add another mile or two. There will be about a 5-minute carpool from headquarters to the hike start.
