Kanokolus Bog Preserve (Unity)

My son and I went snowshoeing at the Kanokolus Bog Preserve in Unity this morning.  The 189 acre preserve is managed by the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust and is an example of a raised level bog ecosystem.  

The preserve’s parking lot had not been plowed so we parked on Route 202 and walked in.  The trail was covered by close to a foot of undisturbed snow due to two recent snowstorms, providing a muted, isolated feel to our hike.  Several animal tracks crisscrossed the trail.  We took the Winter Bog Access trail to ITS-85, a snowmobile trail which bisects the preserve and provided temporary relief from breaking trail.   We hiked a total of 1.25 miles.
