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.

    1. Thank you Linda - the snow made a pretty day out of one that started out drab
