Quaddick Pond State Park & West Thompson Lake

★★★★  4.49 miles

this was another 2-hike day. i did a 1.5 mile loop around quaddick pond state park with a friend. then a fabulous lunch. then i felt like i needed to do more, so after i left my friend’s house i went to west thompson lake and attempted the 3.5 mile circumnavigation of the lake… notice i said attempted. apparently i failed to take note of a small sign at the trailhead which pointed out… well, i’ll let the picture, below, tell the rest.

Another Missing Hiking Bridge

Another Missing Hiking Bridge

sigh—another missing hiking bridge. the sign (which i saw after i got back) promised that work to replace it “is on-going.” riiiight. but the trail was a mile and half at that point, so i still managed 3 more miles that day. this is a pretty cool place. i can’t wait till the bridge actually DOES get replaced. and the woods are full of spring ephemerals now… so beautiful.
