Enjoyed a gorgeous 4.5 mile hike in this newest section of Moreau State Park. I'm sure that this area will gain in popularity once folks realize just how lovely these trails are. Lucky for me, I enjoyed the woods to myself today, not seeing one person the entire time.

Lake Bonita & Lake Anne(Moreau State Park)
I had been intending to hike the newest addition to the Moreau State Park(750 acres had been acquired from Mount McGregor Correctional Facility in 2015) for a while now, but it kept getting pushed off for one reason or another. I saw a post from a fellow blogger a couple of days ago and it rekindled my desire to hike this area. So, I threw my hiking boots in the car and left work today on a warm, sunny afternoon and headed north to exit 16 of the Northway. Followed Ballard Road west past Route 9, where it becomes Corinth Mountain Road, and then eventually Wilton Mountain Road. An unmarked dirt road on the north side of the highway leads to a large parking lot, where I was lucky enough to be the only car there when I arrived.
