Sunny and cool- 50's to about 60- this is a bit north of most of our hikes. Again the ponds were a big factor in choosing this hike. We started from the trailhead on one of the old logging roads- it no longer has a sign naming it but we have hiked it several times in the past.
Starts out down some slate steps and through pretty woods.
Kelley soon found a small stream
We followed the route indicated on the map which brought us first to Big Moose Pond
and then around the pond
and up the side of Little Moose Mt. - a fairly steep climb with a few places Kelley had to find work arounds- but along the ridge is an overlook and a couple of ledges with nice views
Looking east from the same spot- a pano- please click for large version
Then it was down the mountain and over to Little Moose Pond
A little lunch and back the way we came. Near the end are the slate steps I mentioned earlier
A very nice hike- the temperatures were very comfortable and the woods were beautiful. We met no one until we got to the parking lot and met two nice women getting ready to backpack in and spend the night at one of the campsites. 3 hours
