Fifteen people came out to hike the trail from the Spilstead Road into the Ministik Sanctuary. Much of the trail is in the woods, with only a few open views overlooking ponds and lakes.
The day was warm and humid, but we weren’t bothered by any mosquitoes. Perhaps the birds take of them, We didn’t actually see any birds, but we did hear the cry of the woodpecker.
This trail is rich in mushrooms of many kinds. Here are a few.
For lunch we split up into small groups so that we could sit on the fallen logs in the dappled shade.
Thanks to Johanna. for scouting and leading the hike and to trail maintenance for their outstanding work on clearing the trail. You can find more photos on Flickr.
