Another Gorgeous Spot That People Don't Know About

Lake Baroon is stunning – from the bottom and from the lookout.

Baroon Pocket Dam – or Lake Baroon – whichever you chose to call it is certainly a gorgeous spot just 5 minutes from Montville.

It is another one of those hidden gems that a lot of people don’t know about.

At the bottom there is the stunning and serene Lake Baroon.  There is a big shady picnic area with bbqs, covered tables and chairs as well as a nice playground for the kids – plus spectacular views.

For those who would like a view of Lake Baroon from higher up – then there is a 4.7km track to the Baroon Pocket Lookout.  From there the view of the lake and the mountains surrounding it is truly beautiful.  The hike to the top is pretty nice as well!

So next time you are in Montville, whether you feel like a relaxing picnic, or an exhilarating hike, make sure you check out Lake Baroon from either the bottom - or the lookout.

We look forward to seeing you soon, Leanne and Lyle from Montville Mountain Inn Resort
