Brown's Creek Trail

I got to ski on the relatively new Brown's Creek Trail today. It branches off the Gateway trail and goes about 6 miles into Stillwater. The pavement is wonderfully smooth and since it's an old rail road bed it has a very gentle grade down into Stillwater. There were a lot of people on the trail, but the groups were small and friendly. It was kind of nice to have all those people out there since I was alone. Skiing alone can be lonely and make the outing feel longer than it is, but I didn't have that problem today. The gentle climb back out of Stillwater took a little bit longer than the way down, but you don't notice it too much. All in all, a very nice trail for a long easy day and I'll definitely be back.
