11/21/11 Dorr Mountain

Cold but sunny. Seemed like a good day for something a little more strenuous. We parked on the loop road at the Stratheden trailhead and walked the short distance back to the Kebo Mtn. Trail. We quickly reached the summit and then continued down the other side. This is an attractive and very pleasant trail.

We then took the Dorr N. Ridge Trail up to the summit. This was a more strenuous and rocky climb.

From the top of Dorr we descended first on the Schiff ( several of the trails in this area have been renamed).

The Schiff becomes the Emery and now skirts the side of the mountain giving nice views. There are several sections of stone steps

You can see Great Meadow from the path. Lush green in summer but now gone brown.

We then took the Homans Path the rest of the way down. The large number of stone steps and other stonework are evidence of a great deal of effort in the construction of this trail

From Sieur de Monts we took the Jesup Path on which a boardwalk has been constructed as far as Hemlock Rd. In the past this trail was often under water. There is still lots of water in the area and Kelley got brave and jumped off the boardwalk to get into some.

After our lunch at a bench along the way we went to the Stratheden which took us back to our car. Kelley did well and it was a good hike. 3 hours
