Another nice fall day sunny 50's . Someplace we haven't been in awhile. This part of the refuge has trails that are mostly old woods roads and there are others that are not on the maps. It can be confusing.
This trail is often quite wet as the refuge protects a large peat bog and there is little elevation. Today it was muddy but only one pool of water for Kelley until we reached the brook.

We returned via the other side of the loop which is actually a little easier and less muddy,
When we got back to the McLaughlin Rd. ( supposedly used by logging trucks at times but we have never encountered any vehicles- it's also gated ) we continued on a ways looking for the S. Buzzy Brook Trail which we have had problems finding and following in the past. We found a trail but it was not named and we will return tomorrow and explore further. A nice time in the fall woods 2 1/2 hours
