hike #12

Woodard Road east into upper Robert Treman SP, Enfield

Meet-up:  FLT crossing on Woodard Road, southwest of Upper Park Road.

Hikes 12 and 13 shape up at the same place, a very rural road with very deep ditches that you should be careful not to drive into when you’re parking.

We have two different hikes into upper Treman SP that begin here.  Both start by going down the beautiful CCC trail to the grist mill, and then heading up the rim trail for a few minutes.

Here the hikes diverge.  One gets us onto the FLT going east, roughly parallel to Enfield Creek, and runs downhill to where the FLT crosses Route 13.  We never actually make it to this point, since it takes too long.  In fact, this hike is designed to get us into the lovely woods along the south side of Treman SP without having to climb up the steep lower part of the trail that ascends from Route 13.  This is a great way to see the beauty of the park without getting exhausted.

The other walk starting from Woodard takes us from the rim trail through the woods south onto a network of very rural roads that abut Treman to the south west.  These are very quiet and very pleasant to walk on, and make a nice change from the forested part of the walk.
