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
