Moose River Plains Backcountry Pond

The Moose River Plains is a pretty cool place, especially when you start to wander just a bit away from the roads. I see another place that has peaked my curiosity Kettle Pond just off the trail to Whites Pond. It seems to be just less than a two mile walk from the road - half of which would be on a trail and the other half bushwhack. And the trek seems like it would be mostly level. The aerial photo seems to show a rock ledge along the northwest shore. Maybe there could be a campsite here (or at least 150-feet back from here)? A fishing map shows that the pond is 40 feet deep in that area.

Anybody ever been back here? Would it be a tough bushwhack? Im just looking for another cool but easy to get to spot to get away from it all.

Yeah, I hiked through there a few years ago with my Hornbeck. I actually bypassed Kettle Pond and White Pond, as I was on a long haul from Boonville to Plattsburgh at the time, from North Lake on this segment with next immediately heading to Limekiln Lake. My journal doesn't say anything very specific about the area, but the trail I found was good. Here's a pic of a my Hornbeck resting on a convenient rock next to the trail. I do not recall that any of it was a horrible bushwhack, few are.
