Attractions - Round Pond Public Reserved Land rests in the Aroostook Region taking its name from the large body of water that is actually a wide section of the Allagash River.

Recreation - The 20,349-acre wilderness site has a number of unmarked roads and trails throughout the parcel including a trail reaching to the top of Round Pond Mountain. A fire tower rests at the summit offering spectacular views of the surrounding waters and forests. Visible from the tower is Tornado Path, which is a swatch of forestland once leveled by a tornado. Observe the new growth deciduous trees esteemed in a light green shade while the surrounding evergreens present a much darker tone.
