Hiking the Plantation Trail – Dec 07

December 29, 2007

We made a nice round-trip hike from the house on Dec 26th, about a 2-hour tour. We headed west on 13 about a half mile, then right (N) towards the Plantation Trail, R on that trail all the way to Hwy 32, R on Hwy about half a mile, then R on blue blaze trail (along edge of a gray house with a gray gas tank) back towards Canaan Loop Road.

The walk through the forest was very nice – rocky and mossy trail, with numerous patches of ice waiting for the kids to explore and crack, rhododendron forests, spruce and birch, and the excitement of jumping over a small stream!
