Yellow Barn SF is heavily used by cross-country skiers and snowmobilers in winter, so we stay away then; in the other seasons it’s a low-key but delightful walk. Much of the time we’re on old roads running through thick woods. There’s an unusual number of very large puddles that spread across the road and are often full; a lot of our dogs love to get into the puddles and drink from them. There’s also one lovely large pond we pass on the hike route, and a series of large fields that we skirt. The terrain is generally mild and easy, with just a couple of uphill stretches.
This hike used to culminate with a lollipop hike of a ski trail at the far end of the last field we encounter. As of early 2022 that trail is being heavily logged, so we will be avoiding this hike for the foreseeable future.
