2/13/13 Little River Trail and Belfast
Weather continues mild. Thought the Little River Trail might have got enough use to be good hiking. We started from the Walsh Ball Field end. The beginning is across a large open field and the only use had been by skiers- not a good sign. When we got to the wooded area it was still just ski tracks but the walking was easier with less snow.
After a bit the tracks left the trail for a woods road and then back into the woods where the snow was even deeper and more of a slog. Kelley was also struggling, as the tracks were very deep and when it did not improve we gave up and turned back.
That had only taken an hour so we went to Belfast and parked by the harbor to walk around the town a bit. A few of the things we saw.
The boat ramp provided access to the water
There is a section of beach along the harbor that we usually walk but today the tide was high and only a tiny stretch was above water. The water was very clear as this underwater rock shows
