Wednesday July 19, 2017 Irish Hill Loop Hike by Phyllis Rubenstein

In the early evening of July 19, seven of us hiked 3.8 miles on the Irish Hill Loop. We observed the woods debris from recent logging at the start of the trail; saw the signs where a barn and farmhouse once stood, which area was so thickly overgrown we could barely see the stone foundations; stopped at two former viewpoints, where young trees now obscure all views; tasted the flavorable stalks of wild leeks (ramps); and encountered hordes of mosquitos, which buzzed around but didn't bite much. Nice hike overall.
