We found this trail exploring one day. It is not on any maps I know of and then one day we met a hiker who had developed his own maps and he gave me this one and another for the area. On this old map it is called Black Beach.
Sixties and hazy sun but buggy - black fly season is here.The trail starts from the end of Dynamite Brook Rd. road and I think these boulders are to keep out ATVs.
A small stream crosses the trail - easy for Kelley but tricky for me, balancing on wet logs.
These new leaves were so fresh looking
At the beach
We saw no people on the trail ( we never do) but saw two men fishing on the pond
We walked down the beach until a small stream that empties into the pond stopped me.
Once again, no problem for Kelley
Back into the water as we head back along the beach
One of the campsites - there are only 5 or 6. We stopped here for an apple break.
Still lots of old leaves on the trail
Back at the stream that crosses the trail
More new leaves
And finally some flowers. this was some kind of flowering bush.
A very nice day except for the bugs which do not seem interested in Kelley - later the deer flies will be a problem for her. Kelley did well, though she slowed down the last half hour. 2 1/4 hours
