We have walked this trail dozens of time but I never grow tired of it. It is lovely in all seasons and a wonderful, accessible escape from the stresses of day-to-day life. With a quick 15 minute drive from the village center area in the small NH town we live in, we are able to hike up through woodlands, marshes and blueberry fields to the highest elevations, the first mountains as you transition from the coastal plain. The peak of the foliage season is past and the maples have dropped their reds and oranges so today we have the more subdued yellows of the beeches and rusts of the oaks. They glow warmly in the partial sunshine of the day. The woods have begun to smell more “earthy” since the soil is damp from the fall rains and the fallen leaves have begun to decompose. Stroll (scroll) on through and enjoy the views.
