4/6/16 Harbor Brook


Beautiful day - 30's, sun, and no wind.

There was still some ice in the brook but Kelley quickly found a way in


The trail starts above the stream on the side of a hil


Two views of the stream





Last time we were here Kelley didn't want to do this new trail. (The bridge picture is from an earlier hike.) There is not yet a map or even a name so the squiggly path I have drawn is only a guess.


First part of the trail is through fairly dense woods.


Kelley didn't like these steps - they go further than it looks- and needed a boost for part of it.


A section crosses some granite ledge


We reached the carriage rd. and couldn't find evidence of the trail continuing - there were no signs and there had been only tapes to mark the trail.

We turned back and found a spot for an apple break.


Two more of the many times into the stream




It had been a very pleasant day with comfortable temps. Kelley was enthusiastic and even got to meet some people who were on the carriage road when we reached it. 1  3/4 hours
