Cold gray morning ( 60) with possible rain- quite a change from yesterday. We picked a nearby spot so as to not drive a long way only to get bad weather.
We started from the South Trail on Poplar St. The first section is usually wet ( not today) and has a string of bog bridges.
No water at all until we reached the small pond on Spruce Rd. Kelley - got to spend a little time here
These old roads were the major trails until the bike club added several miles of trails.They are all now connected.
As we continued on the wind picked up and we got a few sprinkles and I decided to shorten our route and head toward the big pond. Kelley agreed. and was happy when we reached it
We continued on the Shore Trail
giving Kelley other chances to get into the pond
before we turned away from it to head back to South Trail.
An easy hike and we managed not to get rained on. The temperatures were comfortable once we got moving and the woods were pretty. 2 1/4 hours
