Sunny but 12 degrees and windy, so we wanted woods and headed for the university forests. The small parking area is plowed so you can get your car off the road.
We started from the entrance on Logan Rd. and had nice packed snow with excellent footing- at some point it had been groomed but was now pretty well packed.
I wanted to try, again, to sort the Black Trails and when we got to Sewall Rd. found that the section we were taking had not been groomed, while heading West had. There was still solid footing as others had used it before us.
We passed the trail we wanted ( no sign) and ended up at the entrance on Stillwater Ave. We backtracked to the trail with no sign and found it to be the one we wanted and we followed the route shown above- first time we did not get turned around. Perhaps the groomed trails helped.
We took the White to the Red,the Blue and then the Green loop before heading back to the car.
We also found some unfinished work
A pretty day in the woods. Once we got moving it was comfortable enough and other than at the river we were mostly protected from the wind. 2 1/4 hours
