1/31/12 Lagrange Rail Trail
Cold ( about 10 degrees) , cloudy, and snow predicted but no wind. We did not get the snow but got some peeks of sun. We had not done this rail trail before ( still avoiding the icy slopes) and thought to start from the Lagrange end- closer to us - but couldn't spot the trail head so drove on to Medford and started from there.
A nice wide trail with well packed snow from the snowmobiles ( though we saw none) . Mostly woods
With a few marshy areas. A peaceful quiet walk - we also saw no people during our hike.
Before the trail crossed a regular road there would be warnings to stop and gates ( all simple affairs and open) . I found the corroded metal interesting.
And this milkweed
We walked to Rte. 155 and then turned and returned the way we had come. 4 hours
