Warner Trail, continued – 1/8/12

Tackled another little stretch of the Warner Trail, where it runs through Moose Hill Audubon Sanctuary. Parked one car on Walpole St., and the other at the Sanctuary parking lot. We’ve done the sections from down near the intersection of Moose Hill St. & Upland Road up the Kettle Trail to the Nature Center, and up the Summit Trail to the firetower, plus down the back from the tower over the Old Pasture trail to the Bluff Head Trail – did those sections many times, different times, long before we knew there was a Warner Trail and they were part of it. So we took the more direct route up to the Bluffs. Glorious January day, in the 50s! A little ice in the swamp along the boardwalk. Lots of folks hiking, a family or two sitting, enjoying the view from the Bluffs. Continued on some steep up & downs to Allens Ledge, with the stark remains of a chimney. From there, we continued on and turned left to follow the Warner Trail while the Audubon trail loops back to the right. Stone walls, a little stream, nice woodland path down, down, till we reached our car on Walpole St. Already planning the next route, across Walpole St. and up over Pierce Hill.
