Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

7/9/!7 Harbor Brook



Eighty degrees and mostly sunny. Head here because it seems to be the only place she consistently wants to hike.

We met a nice couple as we were starting and walked with them a short while until we came to the first place Kelley could get in the water. They continued on and we saw no one else the rest of the hike.







One of the two new bridges used to create a bypass of a section of the old trail.



Pretty  good camouflage



Not sure but I think a form of Hawkweed



Flower or weed ?






Another tiny butterfly. None of the larger sit long enough for a picture.



Unknown wildflower



Section of new bog bridge



The water was low- we apparently got less rain than I thought


Making waves - little ones


When we got to the place we usually turn back Kelley wanted to continue and so we did.This is the stream where we did turn back.



Kelley didn't like getting back to the trail from there and so headed downstream. When that did work she head back to where she had entered.



A nice hike. Kelley did very well and as noted  hiked further than what we usually do on this trail. It was very peaceful with no other people beyond the folks we met at the start. (All the parking lots we passed coming in were overflowing). 2 1/4 hours

  1. I am always surprised at the lack of people on the trails there.

    1. You have to know where to go. All the parking lots we passed were overflowed. The couple we met at the start were from out of state but had been here before and knew the areas to avoid
