The White's Pond Trail is little used and sometimes overgrown, however it's worth exploring the trail to White Pond.  The marked trailhead is located off Rock Dam Road, 2.6 miles from Moose River Plains Road.  The trail is well marked with yellow DEC discs.  The trail travels 1.6 miles to White Pond and then on to the southern shores of Limkiln Lake after 3.1 miles.

The trail follows an old road, meandering over a few small streams then climbing, at one point steeply before the old road crosses a marshy meadow at 1.0 miles.  The trail leaves the old road and becomes more rugged.  At 1.4 miles the trail skirts a marshy pond on the left.  The pond comes into view and reaches the beaver dam at the outlet at 1.6 miles.  Most hikers turn back here.

There once was a cabin on the island in the middle of the lake.  Continuing from the outlet the trail becomes more difficult to follow as it climbs the hillside north of the pond.  The trail climbs to a high point of 2418 feet at 2.2 miles before descending to the shore of Limekiln Lake at 3.1 feet at an elevation 1894 feet.
