2/3/12 Dover-Foxcroft End of Rail Trail
Cold - mixed sun and clouds - trails still icy. Another piece of rail trail seemed in order. This time we started in Dover Foxcroft and walked south. There were quite a few snowmobiles on the trail today outward bound but not as bad as the Dexter section. On the return leg ( 2 hours) we were passed by only 4 .
At the start we crossed the Piscataquis River on a bridge.
This section was, again, mostly woods with a few marshy areas.
Don't know what this old building was for or the purpose of this small door.
Kelley being stubborn. She wanted to turn at this point- into private property - and did a sit down. I continued walking ( the lens compressed the distance and she is about a block back) and eventually she gave in and ran to catch up with me.
A pretty good hike. I was comfortable once I got warmed up, the footing was good, and the walking easy. 4 1/4 hours
