The hiking trails in Plymouth of the Russell and Sawmill Pond Conservation Area derive their name from the two ponds the trails skirt around. This seems confusing as other areas near this conservation area have the same names as these. These two ponds are artificially made, originally by the Plymouth Cordage Co. now known as Cordage Park located not far on route 3A.
Both ponds are approximately 4 acre shallow ponds that are stocked each year with Trout. The first pond which is also called Stone Pond on Google maps is Sawmill Pond. The latter is Russell Pond. Both ponds are approximately 4 acre shallow ponds that are stocked each year with Trout. Other fish that have been found to be in these ponds are, Sunfish, Golden Shiners, American Eel, Chain Pickerel and Large Mouth Bass.
Directions: From exit 9 in Kingston on route 3, head south on Route 3A. Follow through Kingston and into Plymouth. About a mile further Bourne St will be on the right. Follow this to the end where the somewhat rough dirt access road will lead to the right.
