Overall this is an easy walk with lots of nice views from ridges and overlooks, along with interesting wild flowers and rocks to see and explore. Driving down the road to the Cove Point Lodge I wonder if I am a Lilliputian about to enter Gulliver’s world. The entrance to the lodge greets visitors with two extremely large white Adirondack chairs. They are so large that the Jolly Green Giant could occupy one and Paul Bunyan the other. Today is another one of those iffy days: grey sky, cold wind blowing in off a lake festooned with white caps, and rain threatening. Judy wants to know if the April-like weather will ever end! So hi ho, off once again we go, but at least we can expect it not to snow!

My favorite trail on the North Shore. I hike it all four seasons and never grow tired of it. Sure there is more spectacular scenery up here, but this my my favorite. 2 to 3 hrs for the loop. Tracked down all winter.
