Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

2/11/16 Frye Mountain Area

Lower twenties, mostly cloudy. but no wind.  Decided on this area because our  hiking spots are iffy and there are several alternatives in this area.

These closed roads are normally nicely packed by snowmobiles but the start showed little use except by walkers.

and the nice snowmobile  trail near the start that goes toward Hogback had not been used so we continued on Walker Ridge Rd.

Waiting for me to take the picture

The trail to Frye Mt. had had one or two hikers and they were not on the actual trail. It was going to be a plod and Kelley sat to show she was not interested. Across the road the trail goes on to Hogback and that, at first, had more traffic.

but soon there was little use and  we turned back again.

Looking into the woods

The road, also crosses the Bartlett Stream, and  serves as part of an alternate route when the water is high making the crossing on the Frye Mt. Trail difficult.

Today the water was not high -  looking both ways

Tiny tree

When we reached the spot where the Frye Mt. trail crosses the road we found that trail unused.

At this point we stopped for an apple break and then headed back

Another small stream

Heading down to the car.

A bit frustrating at times but Kelley was enthusiastic and the surface was firm enough for her and she did well. It was pretty in the woods and we had the whole area to ourselves. 1  1/2 hours
