3/7/16 Newport- Dover- Foxcroft Rail-Trail


This is a 26 mile long multi-use trail. We have done most of it (in sections) . Problem for us, still, is  finding trails with descent footing We didn't know what we would find today. Thirty degrees and cloudy but little wind so it was comfortable.

We started from Dover-Foxcroft  and the start didn't look too bad with snow around the ice.


We soon crossed the river which was full of breaking up ice.


Soon the trail conditions became even better


Even the more open areas had snow and  were OK





 Then it started to snow and became quite pretty - my excuse for excess pictures








When we crossed this stream we stopped for an apple break and then turned back

















Final shot of the trail as we neared the hikes end


This turned out much better than expected. The footing was mostly quite good and Kelley was enthusiastic. The snow made it a prettier hike. 2  1/4 hours

  1. Cool pic of the river ice breaking up. And I also love your photos of the snow falling.
