Old Field Trail in Mid-March
Especially for casual hikers like me, the Old Field Trail is a great warm up. It's a nice easy loop, less than a mile, with minimal elevation change. These two pictures are from the same stretch of trail. Obviously, leaves and other vegetation have not yet arrived. I enjoy this time because the landscape opens up and you learn a lot more about the topography. Ridge lines, roads and nearby houses are visible that will soon be camouflaged by foliage.
Waterloo-Pinckney Trail Awaits
As the small arrow signs in both photos indicate, the Old Field Trail is part of the longer Waterloo-Pinckney Trail. In the above photo, you can make out steps heading up and to the left.
