2/26/12 Sheepscot Headwaters

Sunny but windy with single digit wind chills predicted so we didn't want open ridges today. Montville and the Sheepscot Headwaters Trails was our choice - these trails are almost all woods. We also did not know, since there had been some melting yesterday, what the trail conditions would be.

We started from the Whitten Hill trail head and walked toward the Bog Brook loop. No one had been on these trails since the last snow, except for one small section of the loop, but the trails are well blazed and easy to follow. There was a thin crust on the snow but no ice and the footing was good. Kelley was her usually happy self when on the trails.

We added the Big Pines Trail and in addition to typical big trees there were several of these multi-trunk types.

This trail ends at the meadow ahead and we turned back and continued the loop trail back to the Whitten Hill and to our start.

We decide to continue on up the hill and find a spot for lunch

Which we did and then returned to our car. Good hike - peaceful and quite - with only a taste of the wind at a couple of spots. 2 1/2 hours
