Summiting Mount Tom

8.05 miles   2.3 mph whew. mount tom can be a bear of a trail at the best of times, and i am still a little rusty, north south trail trek notwithstanding. at any rate, there’s more climbing on these trails than i have been doing. so this hike was a much-needed workout. i also […]

Arcadia—Deep Pond, Dye Hill, & Brushy Brook Trails

5.25 miles   ★★★½ wow, this was a longer hike than my poor tired legs wanted to do today. also, new rule: never, never, hike a new trail without hiking poles. i fell 3 times because the trail was rocky and ledgy and completely obscured by fallen leaves. and my legs were tired. all that said, i […]
