Blueberry Ledge Trail,  Rollins Trail, Dicey’s Mill
11.4 Miles
3,754′ Elevation

Lucy and I were up early on Friday. I am in between jobs right now and I have the next two weeks off. This allows me to get in a little more hiking. We were at the trailhead a little before 7. It had cooled off in the past few days. It was a very cool morning and I had to keep moving to stay warm. Because it was so cold I opted out of snowshoes.

The trail was nice and solid because of the colder temps. I was able to stay on top of the snow just fine.

Once it gets warmer though it is going to be bad on the Rollins trail. Be prepared and perhaps bring your snowshoes.

The water crossing on Dicey’s Mill was not an issue as Lucy demonstrates.

I love Dicey’s Mill trail because it passes along one of the oldest path of forrest in the state. Huge old trees can be found here and it has a wonderful energy about it. I recommend it to anyone who has not hiked it. On the way down we me a member of the Wonalancet outdoor club who was doing some trail maintenance. He asked me if I had a moment to help him move a log off of the trail. I did so and was back on my way. There were only a few other people that I saw on this hike and I enjoyed the time alone with Lucy. With the hike over and still plenty of time left I decided we could still get in another hike so we got in the car and made off. It was a great morning hike with the best views I would get all day.
