Entering TWP 22 on Route 9

A small community in Hancock County, the township’s only improved road, in its northeastern corner, is a portion of Route 9, (“The Airline“).

Rocky Pond lies at the center of the township, with a network of unimproved logging roads surrounding it. The 666-acre pond has a maximum depth of 30 feet. According to a 1960 survey,

As its name implies, it is a shallow, rock-strewn pond located several miles south of the ” Airline” (Route 9) in Hancock County. Access is over an extremely rough road passable only by 4-wheel drive vehicles or trucks. It is one of the major lakes in the East Branch of the Union River drainage. Rocky Pond is very heavily populated with white perch. Pickerel are also firmly established. . . . . Fishing pressure here is thought to be extremely light. During cool seasons, you may catch an occasional trout that has moved in from tributaries or the outlet. You also may take an occasional salmon that has dropped down from the Lead Mountain ponds above.
