4/2/10 Ship Harbor-Wonderland-Big Heath

A foggy start. It was supposed to burn off by 9 but it hung around until 11:30. We put together 3 trails and a bushwhack to make up our day.
We started at the Ship Harbor parking on 102A. This is a figure 8 loop but we did the side closest to the water. The trail starts in woods with spits out to the water and then follows the shore.

At the tip of the Ship Harbor Trail we went off the trail toward Wonderland-mostly on the rocks but sometimes into the woods and scrub hoping to get to the Wonderland Trail.

When we reached Wonderland we walked out to the road and back to our car.

We then drove to Seawall Campground and walked through it to the Hio Road and walked that to Rt. 102 and returned. The gravel road is through the woods and quite pleasant but you do not get a sense of the heath. 3 -1/4 hours


  1. Your pictures of the shoreline and fog inspire me. Seeing Kelley sniffing the path and the pebble beach make me realize how much her sense of a place is driven by the odors, whereas our memories seem to be more visual.

  2. I think you are right about Kelley. She often stays on the path when I miss a turn. She also gets more excited when she gets out of the car at some spots than she does at others and I wonder if she knows which trail we are at ( she does seem to have favorites).
