2/21/15 Glenburn Snowmobile Trails


Cold and mostly sunny with no wind, though it did cloud up as we hiked. We wanted to get in a good hike today because we have another storm coming tonight, making tomorrow iffy. We hadn't done this section yet this year as the last time we checked it was very icy. Today the trails had been groomed and used and the walking was easy.



I didn't take many pictures but the terrain  is varied , mostly woods but..

A row of birches along a large field


A section of bog. Today it was solid but we have been on it when the ice did not support us and we got wet feet.


Pushaw Lake


In the past we had not been able to find the route from the lake to the other trail that returns to the trail on which we had come. Today we stopped a snowmobiler and he gave us directions that worked. We also met a skier and her dog that we had met on these trails last winter. Kelley seemed enthusiastic throughout even though this was a 3  3/4 hour hike.

    1. Thanks penbayman - she was not- the surface was well packed until near Hudson Rd. at the end we got off track and had to go through some quite deep snow. When we reached the road she wanted to walk it the shirt distance to the car and we did.
