8/21/10 Day Mountain - Hunters Brook

We started from the Day Mountain trail head on Rte. 3 and hiked over the mountain to the carriage road on the north side.

Hot and dry again so Kelley is having a rest.

There is a large rock face along the carriage road that contained another example of life starting in inhospitable places.

I neglected to take a wider view but have one from an earlier hike.

From the carriage road we took the Triad/Hunters Brook or Triad Pass Trail rather than the Parkman Trail which I knew would be dry and didn't remember this one and so hoped for water. There was none. The trail is steep in parts but has some nice views.

From the Triad we hiked down to the Hunters Brook Trail, which runs along the brook ( happy Kelley) and then took the road to the Hunters Beach Trail and down to the beach and more water.

A wet Kelley waiting for me to unpack lunch.

After lunch we took the trail that looped back to where we had started. This trail is not part of park property and I don't know it's name. After it crosses the road it has a sign saying 'Lower Day Mountain' and takes you to the parking lot. 3-3/4 hours


  1. Kelley seems to be a calm reflective individual, not a yappy hyper pup. A good companion for landscape viewing.

  2. She is a good companion and not yappy but she does get excited when we meet people or dogs on the trail. She just has to greet everyone.
