10/24/12 Little Long Pond - Cedar Swamp Mountain

We did this hike with Jill and Kelley's newest friend Ellie. A little nippy to start but it turned into a near perfect hiking day. We started from the parking lot and took the Friendship Path down to the pond. We soon met a dog and owner we had previously met so we were off to a good start.We followed the pond to the Jordan Stream Trail. The water was high and we had to get around some small pools. Kelley was, of course, happy with all the water. Ellie likes the water too but perhaps not quite as much as Kelley.

When we reached the cobblestone bridge we took carriage roads to the Asticou and that to the Sargent S. Ridge Trail. Our goal was not Sargent but Cedar Swamp Mountain about a mile and a half up the trail. This trail has some nice views on the way up.

We walked back the way we had come to the Asticou with the shortening days evident

and then took the carriage roads back to our car. It had been a very nice hike with lots of variety. The dogs both seemed to enjoy it  and got along well together. Kelley seemed to be a little lame near the end but is ok this morning.  5  1/4 hours.
