Beginning with this posting, I'm going to try something that is new to me by reducing the narrative, and putting more emphasis on captioned photos. Should a reader desire more detailed information, I am most willing to reply to questions/comments posted to this blog; or, an e-mail can be sent to me (click HERE for address).
In mid-January 2016, two short treks were launched from the trailhead along Rt. 302 near the Willey House Station Site (not to be confused with Willey House Historic Site located a little farther north on Rt. 302).
I began with a short bushwhack to a beaver pond that is located just a short distance off the Saco River Trail near the junction with Webster Cliff Trail. My second trek was also a short bushwhack. The location was the north bank of Avalanche Brook in the general vicinity of the Willey House Station Site.
