A group hike the "Twins" on June 19th, 2018

Tuesday's hike to the Twins was cut short at the river crossing, deemed too risky for all three of us to get across safely, due to high water from the previous day/night heavy rain.

June 14th, B group hike East Pond loop

Today a larger group of hikers, with a mix of abilities set out to enjoy the beauty off Tripoli Road.  The adventure starts with getting to the trail head, as Tripoli Rd is not the easiest to travel.  Once we set off on our journey, we were greeted with beautiful lady slippers, numerous water crossing, and countless piles of moose droppings.  The pond is beautiful, and we were grateful the bugs were not as thick as we would have expected.  It was a lovely hike, very family friendly.  I would call this on the "easy" side, not moderate, unless of course you are on cross country skis in the winter.  But for hiking purposes, I'd call it an "easy hike".  A very nice one in fact.
