This afternoon we went for a quick hike on the Stone Trail and Oscar's Trail. All in all, we were out for about 30 minutes. These were both well-cleared trails that were quite easy to hike. Additionally, we took a side-trail called Oscar's Folly. This is the only trail marked difficult in the park. It was actually quite steep leading in and out and not very well cleared, but a fun side-trip, nonetheless.

As we set off on the Stone Trail, a large bird with brown feathers along the back of its wingspan swooped across the trail, just up ahead. We walked very quietly hoping to spy it in the trees, but it was long gone. We couldn't help but wonder if it might have been a Barred Owl?

We plan to go back to Poland Spring Preservation Park and try some of the longer trails as well. The Stone Trail and Oscar's Trail are fun and quite easy to travel. Enjoy!

Mosquitos gather here to suck our your soul. Plus the trails are all very much the same and dull. And did I mention itchy? Cus it was itchy.....and dull.

A nice network of moderate trails which are easy to follow. These will be great for snow shoeing.
