This vernal pool sits within view of Rock Scree Trail. It is the quickest drying of the cluster of pools on the east side of Kings Gap Road in the vicinity of the Pine Plantation. It was not restored as part of the 2010 wetland restoration project at Kings Gap. Photos submitted to Chronolog help us document the life cycle of this pool, such as how long it holds water each year, and how it may be changing with our changing climate.
