Sunkhaze Meadows NWR, Johnson Brook Trail

Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge consists of 11,484 acres of forest, peatland, and streams.

The Johnson Brook Trail is a 4 mile trail on the east side of the refuge featuring woods and wetlands on relatively flat terrain.  From the parking lot, it starts as a relatively wide trail but narrows after the first stretch of trail.  The trail today was covered with several inches of snow so I elected to snowshoe.  Parts of the trail are raised boardwalks presumably to cross wetland areas that today were covered in snow.  The northwest tail section of the trail was not well maintained with several downed trees making travel difficult.

Here is a map of my hike.
