Fort Nature Refuge

3.9 miles   ★★ meh. this audubon society property really doesn’t have much to recommend it, unless you want to see the results of extensive beaver activity. oh, and it did have a very pretty hemlock grove. otherwise, it was kind of boring, and had excessive road noise. there were downed, gnawed, and girdled trees everywhere. […]

Arcadia, Deep Pond Trail

3.69 miles   ★★★★★ i passed the 500 mile mark on this trail, which was, by the way, beautiful. hard to believe that 1) i have walked 5oo miles since january 1st (or approximately 23% of the appalachian trail), and b) there are still trails in arcadia i have yet to walk, but both things are […]

Barn Island, Saltwater Farm Vineyard

3.31 miles   ★★★★★ back to barn island again… i just can’t keep away. went with a couple friends on a leisurely stroll. the place was jumping! it was super busy with hikers, mountain bikers, joggers, dog walkers, and a couple of graduate students working on their theses, not to mention about a dozen boat trailers […]
