1/9/12 Sunkhaze

Cold gray day. A good day to see if we could find the trail head for South Buzzy Brook. We parked on stud Mill Road and walked up the McLaughlin Rd. This is a description "The Buzzy Brook Trails are located in the northwest corner of the refuge and can only be reached by walking down McLaughlin Road from the Stud Mill Road. These trails are a network of old logging roads and are rarely maintained. The distance is 2.3 miles to Buzzy Brook via the North Buzzy Brook Trail. A topographic map and compass is recommended if you choose to visit this area of the refuge." We had done the North trail and found it not too hard to follow but when we tried to reach the south trail from that trail it got confusing so we thought this time to try from the McLaughlin Rd. We walked the length of the road without finding the trail.

Kelley was excited as usual

These tracks were 3 1/2 inches long and there were a lot of them. I guessed turkey and we later saw three of them on the road ahead.

We explored some of the side roads that were not on our map

A pretty good outing in spite of not finding the trail we were looking for. That just means another try-maybe with a different approach. 2 1/2 hours


  1. Did Kelley pick up the scent of the turkey?

  2. She saw them- they were not close to us- barked a little ( something she seldom does)and then relaxed. When she was young she used to start after squirrels or birds when we walked in the neighborhood but quickly realized she wasn't going to get them and now doesn't bother. The girl doesn't waste energy.
