I decided this very cold Christmas morning to take a walk between gift opening and dinner. Still following doctors orders (for the most part) of no hiking I choose Lincoln Woods because of the loop road that goes around Onley Pond. Starting at a parking area near the beach I walked the loop road counter clockwise around the pond. Along the way I came across a small tree someone had decorated for Christmas. After the dam I came to an intersection. I followed the road to the left until I came to a sign for the Sunset Hiking Trails. I did venture off briefly onto a small set of trails that ran along the edge of the pond that would come back out the road again. I then followed the road to the left and back to the car. I will probably return here in the future to explore the off road trails further.
