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.
