CT Appalachian Trail - Section 3 - West Cornwall Road to Caesar Brook

April 20, 2014

Miles: 5
Time: 3 hours 37 minutes  (going slow today)

Parking: West Cornwall Road, room for only 3 cars in a narrow area off the side of the road. In the winter, there was no parking here. GPS coordinates: N 41 degrees 52.409', W 073 degrees 23.467'.

Rest rooms: none

Hike directions: 
From parking area, head into the woods (same side of the street).
Cross a log bridge over Carse Brook (deep enough for swimming dogs). 
Hike to Caesar Brook, just north of the campsite.
Return to car.

Hike description: This hike had a lot of incline without much in the way of views. 
The swimming in the brook was fun though!

Year to date miles:   131.6

Brook crossing at the beginning of the hike. Deep enough for swimming.
We stopped here on the way back to swim the dogs.

So happy to start seeing wildflowers

The hike feels like it ascends a lot, but no named summits.

Looks like house remains, just before Caesar Brook

Taking a break for a snack, and to throw sticks  into Caesar Brook
