4/2/12 U. Maine Forest
Snowing ( lightly) when we got up with rain predicted so when it started to clear we headed to the university in Orono to see , once again, if we could follow their trail map. This time we started out in the opposite direction to that we usually take. We did well until we crossed the bike path and were in a large field with no detectable path so we just headed across it to the road ( indicated by broken pink line) . We again found the trail but lost it by the athletic field. Back to the bike path and we found the trail we were looking for and followed it to the area near the corn field loop. Then , as usual, it became more confused. There are several trails and old wood roads in this area not on the map so I can't say which route got us back to the start.
Kelley didn't care which path or trail we were on and found lots of water to get into. She thought it was pretty good. 2 1/4 hours
