5/6/15 Stillwater River Trail

Sixties and sunny - another beautiful day. I had a morning appointment which got us off to a late start so we went for a nearby short hike.

I couldn't find a descent map but the trail runs along the river from Main St. in Orono to Bennoch Rd.

Signs of spring at the start


Into the river


Bend in the river


The trail is mostly quite close to the river


and has a varied terrain


Maple flowers floating on a pond


In one section there had been a lot of beaver activity


Back in the water


More signs of spring

Across the river





One last time before we finish


A very pleasant outing on a beautiful day. 1  1/2 hours

  2. Beautiful ! It's 86 here in KY and it's supposed to reach 89 and it's not even Summer!! I do not like Summer nor hot miserable days, lol.
    Glad to see Spring has finally arrived there. You'll be planting pretty soon?

    1. Hi Serafina- I don't like heat either. would be fine by me if it never got above 70. I have sowed peas and salad greens, got Asian vegetables potted up and Kale in the ground- peppers, tomatoes, eggplants going inside. It was along winter but the growing begins.
