2/7/12 Little River Trail, Belfast
After yesterday's adventure we decided on flatter ground and went to Belfast to the Little River Trail. There are some gentle ups and downs but nothing strenuous and mostly woods rather than rocks. A beautiful mostly sunny day with temps in the 30's. We started from the ball field parking area. The trail goes through woods until at this point it reaches the river and begins to follow it.
At Perkins Road you have to cross to the other side to continue the trail and we saw this farm with llamas. Kelley looked at them and they looked at her- they went back to eating and we continued walking.
We did not go much further east as the trail gets icier as you near the water district office. We had found this last year in winter and suspect it has something to do with drainage. So we turned back the way we had come.
This is the reservoir from the road at the spillway.

A nice peaceful hike- we met one other nice couple- and a beautiful day. 3 3/4 hours
