8/26/14 Redman Beach

Another day of upper 80's- we headed for the area near Franklin, which was a bit cooler, and an easy hike with water for Kelley. We learned about this trail, and got the map, from another hiker we met on Tunk Mt.  It starts from the end of Dynamite Brook Rd. and is an old woods road that is mostly grown in to a single path.

About twenty minutes into the hike we crossed a small stream.

Redman Beach ( called Black on the map) is on Donnell Pond and other routes to it are longer and hillier. We usually find no one there but there were three families camping- they had come by canoe from across the pond. Kelley was happy to greet all these folks and the several small children as well as enjoy the pond.

We walked to the end of the beach- the beach people use is much like an ordinary beach.

After greeting folks again , and Kelley getting in the water several more times, we headed back.

Reflections in the stream

This was a very pleasant hike. Other than at the pond we were in mostly shaded woods which were pretty and quiet. 2  1/4 hours 


  1. I love how excited Kelley gets to meet new people - she is so adorable.

    1. Hi Kim- luckily she has such a friendly demeanor and, as has been said, "a full body wag" that people take to her too.

  2. Looks like a beautiful place. Love your reflections photo.

    1. Hi Linda- it is very nice- Thanks for comment on the reflection
