My second walk this morning was right around the corner from St. Andrews Farm. It is a heavily wooded area with a few trails. I started this hike from the end of Townsend Street. The trail begins by utility pole 19-84 and enters the property running along abutting properties. I did not follow the map for this walk. I instead just did some exploring and pretty much covered the entire property. I found that when I stopped occasionally that the woods would come alive with songbirds. I had found myself bird watching quite a bit here. There is also a small stream that runs through the property. I thought this was a nice little property for a short walk. The only things that I found that could be potentially negative were first, the ground was still quite frozen, but there is potential for a lot of mud, and second, I saw a lot of poison ivy here. Stay on the trails to avoid it. I think this may become another of my local walking locations.
