We awoke to fresh snow. Only an inch or two at home. When we got to the forest we found three or four inches- only a couple of miles from "as the crow flies" .
We met a woman with her dog near the start but soon passed where she had turned around and the trail was unused. Still, the footing was pretty good as the base underneath had a chance to freeze overnight.
The side trails all have had little or no use and the snow is still quite deep and not supportive.

We tried the old rail bed but it was too soft and so returned on Main and the Loop Rds. where we met only one man. A nice little hike - temps in the lower thirties and no wind. Kelley like the loose snow and seemed to be her old self. The new snow made the woods pretty. 1 1/2 hours
