Cool ( 40's ) gray and drizzly but supposed to be worse tomorrow so we headed for Medford. The first part of the trail is reported to be quite wet so we start at Medford Center from the town office. Although only 35 or 40 miles north of Bangor, where the snow is pretty much gone, this was the start of the trail.
There were small sections without snow but the trail was mostly snowy. There was also a lot of water as the trail passes beaver ponds, marshy areas, and streams.
We reached a point after a road where the trail became quits a bit wider and then was almost clear. At that point we turned and headed back. Turned out to be a pretty good hike. By the time we had started the drizzle had stopped and we got some sun along with the clouds- but it stayed mostly overcast. It also warmed - around 60 at the end - and the walking was easy. 3 1/4 hours
