Reviews Photos Tracks Brett Haas (2300) 11 months ago N/A: 74 Completed 75 Reviews The Tanawa trail is over 13 miles long, and contained in a separate listing, but this trail goes around Cold Prong Pond (according to the "start symbol" on the map. This trail is a good access trail for the Tanawa / MST, and loops around a pond that is always dry. I hiked it, and there is no pond anymore- its a dry grassland. The Actual Tanawa trail is very nice, with rolling meadows, and great views of Grandfather mountain and Wilson Creek Valley.
