1/18/16 Newport- Dover-Foxcroft Rail Trail

This time from the Dover-Foxcroft end. Gray snowy morning and I thought maybe not many people had the day off so there wouldn't be too many snowmobiles, but good walking.

By the time we got to the trail the snow had about stopped and Kelley seemed anxious to hike.

Start of the hike

We soon came to the bridge across the Piscataquis  River and were passed by four snowmobiles- maybe more people off work than I thought , but Kelley sat at the side of the trail, as she usually does, until they passed.

The river both ways

A short ways after the bridge there was an ungroomed side trail that Kelley wanted to take.

Unfortunately it didn't go far, taking a loop across a large field to someones house - side trails are sometimes just from someones home to the main trail.

but here was a nice tree

Heading back out

Once we got back to the main trail, Kelley sat and would not continue until I started back the way we had come. I hoped  she would continue on  past the car on the trail we used a few days ago. There was a guy trying to plow the parking area and I got Kelley in the car while I  moved it. She wouldn't get back out so I gave up and drove home. Not sure what was going on. We have hiked many snowmobile trails and been passed by sleds many times without it seeming to bother her. They are almost always considerate and slow down and pull to the side to give us lots of room. Weird day - wish she could talk to mr.
