Newton Road upper loop

5 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •

Sad week. I've been caring for my mom on hospice for the past two months,and she died on Wednesday. Feeling really numb. The woods were just the balm I needed.

Forest Park was eerily quiet. Germantown and Cornell Road are both closed-due to storm damage I assume. Newton TH was accessible. Only saw one trail runner in the 2 1/2 hours I was out there. Combined FL 10, Lief Erickson, Waterline and Wildwood for a perfect 5 mile loop. Trails are fine, just bits of blow down here and there. Not much snow left.

Council Crest

6.5 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •

Misty day. Started at the Markham Shelter on a standard loop, but ended up wandering around the Hillsdale neighborhood with all kinds of nifty little paths between the streets and some cool old houses, fancy houses, houses on stilts. Got a little confused with my directions but eventually made my way back to the east side and trails.

Was not expecting snow! Luckily my microspikes were in the car. Surprised to have fresh tracks on the weekend. Just lovely.

FL 15, Newton and BPA loop

6 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •

THs overflowing with cars, but plenty of room to spread out. You can get some nice steep ups if you link up BPA road and FL 15. Still a bit of a mudfest, but Newton Creek is back to a rock hop.

Umbrella Hike. First time here. interesting network of trails, with fun names. Took Bumpscooter to the bike trail, then came up Bark Spur and Caddywhomper to Hare Canyon and the Unfit Settlement trail. Had the place all to myself.

Wilwood/Newton/BPA Loop

6.5 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •

Muddy day-even the Wildwood required close attention to footwork. Newton Creek in full spate. Happy morning dose of greenwalls.

Caring for my ailing mom in my home now. Adventures more limited. Feel lucky that I can still get away for short trips.

Started 2021 with a big fat dose of green.
