6/25/10 Dorr Mountain


A warm humid start but the humidity seemed to lessen later in the hike. Several of the trails in this area have been renamed. We started at the nature center and took the Emery Path from which we got this view of Great Meadow.

Emery Path

That trail becomes the Schiff Path on which Kelley is having a little rest. I think these were once just the East Face Trail.

When we reached the summit we decided to go down by the North Ridge Trail and continued onto the Kebo Mountain Trail

Where we found our first ripe blueberries and continued over Kebo to the loop road.

We walked the short distance to the Stratheden Trail and that to Hemlock Road and back to our car. A nice hike 3-1/2 hours

  2. And Dorr has several trails you can use to make different loops. We like them all.

  3. Those five pics, with long view, closeups and medium shots do a nice job of telling the story of your hike. Good job.
    My imagination is piqued by the names of the trails, roads, and paths you travel there. I'm guessing that there is a rich history behind the names.

  4. Thanks, John . Yes, many are named for people who funded trails or in honor of someone the designated.Others are named for supporters of preserving the land, creating the park, etc. Most were built in the early part of the 20th century.
