Economy River Falls

Economy River Falls

Updated June 3rd. The trail to the falls is now cleared and is not a jungle anymore-thanks to whoever did the bush whacking It’s been years since I have been to Economy Falls-can’t even guess at how long. But being semi retired means one can pick up and go when the mood strikes them-usually. That’s what we did on a recent beautiful spring day -just packed a lunch and headed out for beautiful Colchester County. and the hike to the…

Meandering to Meander River Falls

Meandering to Meander River Falls

It was a perfect day to attempt to find the Meander River Falls-not too cold, not too hot, not raining and not icy,like the last attempt.. It was just right. Good thing too, because we spent an inordinate amount of time, while still heading in the general direction of where we thought the falls would be,climbing up and down the ravine in search of the trail.Great leg workout,though. There were sections that absolutely resembled a path where humans  trod. Others…

Ughhh. Another snowy February day. Another bleak, cold,$#*@## day.  Still over a month until Spring shows up on the calendar and even then it won’t really feel like spring.

Here are four choices for a weekend getaway that just will restore your sanity. **Please remember: It’s winter. That means ice and slippery conditions are…

Hiking the Coney Brook Trail

Hiking the Coney Brook Trail

Since experiencing the beautiful Skyline Trail along the Cabot Trail  last September,we’ve been planning for almost  a year to hike to do it again in October when the fall leaves would be at their most vibrant. Mother Nature had a different idea. Skyline was closed due to aggressive moose behavior-it is the rutting season after all. So. No Skyline. 🙁 .alas. (However we were very lucky to see a pair of moose across from the Coney Brook trail head)  …

Summer Trip to Indian Falls Trail

Summer Trip to Indian Falls Trail

Eureka! We found it!  Last time we attempted to find Indian Falls we failed-ended up on the edge of someone’s woods. Rule #1 Just goes to show you can’t always trust Google directions. Seems like we had the same problem when we first tried to find Crystal Falls It’s actually not that hard. From Hwy 101 take Exit 13 to Route 12, head to New Ross. Turn right onto the Forties Road at New Ross and then turn left at Franey’s…

Winter Walk to Crystal Falls

Winter Walk to Crystal Falls

Today was positively balmy for a January day with temperatures above freezing-a welcome relief from the bone chilling weather  we experienced last week. So, we decided to try and get down to Crystal Falls, just south of Greenwood. I don’t recommend it this time of year if there is ice or snow on the ground. Don’t get me wrong. The walk up to the point of descending to the falls was fine. The snow wasn’t deep at all, and it…

Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

I first heard about the Crystal Falls trail when perusing fellow blogger Laura Churchill Duke’s write up on Valley Family Fun, so on a day off hubby and I decided to give it a go. Laura had already gotten good directions from the Kingston Visitor Centre-we used those. I have included them below. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I love it especially for getting outdoors and exploring. Directions to  the Crystal Falls Trail Take Exit 17 to…

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

It”s been years since I’ve done the Bohaker Trail in Delaps Cove in Annapolis County . I remembered it was  a fairly short hike and that there was a point along the trail where one could see the Bay of Fundy and a waterfall at the same time. The trail was indeed short-just over 2 km, and that includes a careful decent to the bottom of the falls. Once again, a perfect day. No bugs. No rain. No blistering heat….
