The “circuit” loop is well groomed and wide enough to easily social distance. On the front side of the trail, route nine can easily be heard. We took the Whitestone trail on the back of “circuit” in order to add a little distance. Boy, was that a mistake! Overgrown and muddy. Several times we couldn’t find the trail. Thanks to this app we were able to stay on track. Long story short, albeit a little noisy due to route nine, the circuit loop is a pleasant trail with some beautiful views and a couple of small hills for an extra cardiovascular boost.

Trails are groomed for cross country skiing this time of year. Hike was decent. Beautiful mature spruce, beech, ash and yellow birch forest. Some old stone walls and foundations. Signs of deer, coyote and bear. Ravens at the top of Judges hill.

Nice hike meandering through the forest, meadows and country roads. Again the weather was perfect, praise God for his beautiful creations. The hike was about 5 miles, I forgot to turn on my Recording. Met some nice people from the Berkshire Knapsackers Club/Group. The last picture is of a small snake . I am Not sure what kind it is but is was so tiny that at first I thought it was a night crawler.
