Matty and I visited Peaks Kenny State Park this afternoon, hiking from the park's entrance to the beach area along the park's closed road. The snow was firmly packed down along the road, making walking in boots a relatively easy task. It was 15 degrees out, but when we reached the beach area 30 mph winds were whipping in from the lake, making it feel like -6 degrees. The round-trip distance was 3.2 miles.
Here is a map of our hike. We had a great time despite the frigid temperatures.

Matty and I explored the McPhetres Farm Forest in Veazie this afternoon, hiking 8/10 of a mile on slushy, modestly hilly trails. The 25 acre preserve is owned by the Town of Veazie and sits adjacent to two other preserves - Davis Forest and Manter Wood - giving visitors several trail options for exploring the combined woodlands.
When I last visited here in September 2019, I found the trail system somewhat confusing. However, since that time the trails have been freshly blazed and new trail maps have been added at nearly every intersection, making it very easy to navigate.
Here is a map of our hike.
