Picnic at Braley Pond in George Washington National Forest

Braley Pond is a 4.5-acre lake built in the George Washington National Forest in 1965 by the U.S. Forest Service. Keeper-sized rainbow trout are stocked and largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish are thriving. It provides picnic tables, grills, and restrooms as well as a hiking trail that circles the lake.

 The  Braley Pond creek was covered with red sugar maple leaves.

 Bridge crosses creek leading to Braley Pond.

 Picnic tables are scattered throughout the trees in a well-kept area.

 Hiking trail circles the lake.

Barb took a moment on the bridge to watch the little bit of water in the creek.
