Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

12/15/14 Perch Pond

Another gray cold day (31 degrees) even though the forecast was for clear skies. Reluctant to drive far with still uncertain trail conditions so we went to Perch Pond.

We started from the North trailhead and found there was still a fair amount of snow and only one person before us.

Luckily the crust was firm enough, for the most part,  to support Kelley. When we got to the Spruce Road there had been more traffic and walking was easier for me. Once we got off on other tails there was little or no prior traffic and  more water than we had seen on any previous hikes.

When we got to the pond we found it frozen.

Kelley was disappointed but found several small pools that were not frozen. Another day in which we met no one. The sun never came out and it was still 31 degrees when we finished our two hour hike. 


  1. Love the trail names here! :-)

    1. Thanks for commenting Cindy. There were trails here that the university maintained and then a bike group added about five miles of trails- they came up with those names.
