12/26/11 Sheepscot Headwaters

Fresh snow so we headed for the trails near Montville. These are relatively flat with good footing and well marked. We started from the new parking lot on Halldale Road and first did the Northern Headwaters loop. Kelley was, of course, very excited about the fresh powdery snow and it was beautiful.

There are many of these old rock walls in the area

At this point the trail passed through one of the walls.

After that loop we took the Whitten Hill Trail down and did the Bog Brook Loop. We met several people , and one dog, which was interesting as we have seldom met people on these trails in the past. A nice 3 1/2 hour hike


  1. Beautiful scenery! We are lacking snow here in NE Iowa (I'm not complaining really) so seeing it on other blogs is kinda nice. Not running into hunters? That's what I have to look out for this time of year.

  2. Hi Casey - Snow was late this year but it has been beautiful ( except for the shoveling part? The deer season is over and there is only some small game still available. During deer season we tend to hike more at Acadia where hunting is not allowed.

  3. Nice photos. Interesting light temperatures.

  4. Thanks John= tried to make them consistent but couldn't
