12/17/11 Georges Highland Path


Cold and gray with snow flurries. Decided to do a section of the GHP that we had not done because there had been a sign by the road saying it was closed due to logging operations. We noticed the other day that the sign was gone. However, today the area around the trailhead was flooded, with planks that had been laid to get through floating in the water. We looked for a way around the water and found a snowmobile trail and started up that. It turned into a nice grassy track but did not take us back to the trail. We followed it anyway.



This eventually turned into a muddy road but I spotted a blue blaze and a sign off in the woods and we checked it out.



We were going to use it anyway but it was in such poor repair we couldn't distinguish it from the woods around it. Back to the road - which eventually took us to the Hogback Overlook loop which we entered. When we reached the ridge we explored several of the roads/ snowmobile trails up there before resuming the loop back down.

Back down we returned the way we had come . I don't know what animal this is but someone had stuck it on this tree.



A little snow on the fungus






Not as planned but an interesting hike anyway. 2 3/4 hours
