Forty degrees and cloudy with rain forecast. We headed out to get one in before it started again - lots of rain last night.
We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. and across the meadow and down to the beaver pond.
It's finally ice free
Then the West Trail
There was lots of water for Kelley
On to some side trails, trying to find a way around the section they closed.
We ended up on the old railbed
Then onto more trails we were not familiar with and the route on the map above is just a guess.
We had to backtrack some and eventually ended up at the section that had been closed ( trees cut down to block the trail) . At that point we just bushwhacked around the obstructing trees and came to the stream Kelley likes and then continued back to West.
Once more into the beaver pond on the way out
Turned out pretty well. Kelley was more energetic than yesterday, we met a few people, and there was water everywhere. The rain didn't start until we were almost to the car. 1 1/2 hours
