Napatree Point, again

★★★★★ i know i said i wouldn’t repeat myself this month, but it actually SNOWED here sunday, and i tried to think of a place i could walk that wouldn’t have snow, but would still have a plowed-out parking lot. napatree it was. also started bringing along my real camera, so i’m not using the […]

Ninigret Wildlife Refuge

★★★★★ without peer. flat, clearly marked, perfectly maintained trails, lots of birds, some very beautiful spots. did 3.5 miles, all at a very good clip. 100% walkey, no climby parts. loved it! also has some geocaches on the park side, but i didn’t attempt them.

★★★★ very nice. fairly clearly marked trails. about 80:20 hikey:walkey, with some serious climby parts, but they are worth it, because you get up to tipping rock (below). came to about 2 miles. there’s a geocache near the cemetery, but i didn’t find it. didn’t really look for it, because it was windy and cold.

River Road (Southern Half)

Perry Natural Area

★★★★ this is a cool place. interesting rock piles and old cellar holes and an old well and an old cemetery. barely 2 miles walking total, though, and that’s if you don’t miss any of the poorly-marked trails. BUT i found my first geocache ever here, at the old cemetery! yay!

★★ dh brought me through some of the trails he bikes, then i tried to find a geocache at an historical cemetery (couldn’t!). nice walk, but very climby and hikey in parts. included some considerable road-walking, which i’m also not crazy about.
