Clay Meadow to Bear Point Hike ~ Apr 28, 2016

Journal entry by Don McMahon



We walked from Clay Meadows east down hill and over the bridge that crosses Northwest Bay Brook to the trail junction. I have not been there for some time and there is now a long beaver dam adjacent to the bridge that now creates a picturesque pond. From the trail junction we headed south up the side of a hill that creates a 200 foot elevation change, heading then downhill back toward the NWB brook, passing seveal minor brooks cascading down the mountainside on the way. The trail travels some distance next to NWB brook, something I didn't remember, but I have been canoeing on the brook many times since being on the trail - so different perspective! We hiked through many little ups and downs, passing the entrance of NWB brook on the way to Bear Point which offered views of NW Bay and a pleasant spot to have lunch. It was a breezy, cool day with no bugs, a good day to be enjoying the woods - expecially since, wiothout leaves, you could see through the woods and enjoy the nearby rocky ledges. I thank the Westcotts, Jo Ellen, Liz, and Linda for their good company. No pictures - no one had a camera!
