5/6/14 Newman Hill-Hinds

Mostly cloudy with rain forecast so we went to this nearby spot we hadn't been to since the snow and ice melted. I was going to post the new map also and go into my rant about their maps but won't bother.

Kelley was her usual enthusiastic self again ( still no explanation for yesterday) and got right into Black Pond - Boulder is more difficult to get out of.

We took the little side trail to Pine Pond

and walked around it to view from the other side.

We then took the rail trail that is not shown on the map, planning to explore further down

Lots of water -ponds and pools

At this point the trail was closed because of nesting herons and we turned back and took the route shown on the map.

View from Newman Hill

Turned out to be a pretty good hike. The trails were in good shape with only a few easily got around wet spots. Kelley was enthusiastic throughout  2  1/2 hours 


  1. Lots of good water reflection shots!

    1. Thank you, Linda- there were finally signs of spring - mostly buds - I took a lot of pictures and managed to get them all badly out of focus

  2. Hopefully the weather is getting back on track..

    1. Hi penbayman--lets hope so- today was great- around 60, sunny, little wind- shirt sleeve hiking!
