The first chance I got I went right back to continue exploring the West Trail of Marine Park. The last time I was there I entered at Allen Avenue. This time I ventured further south and got onto the trail via Channel Avenue. Just beyond the perimeter of P.S. 277 there was a big clearing with tire marks to suggest some vehicles recently plowed through the area. It was too close to the road (Gerritsen Avenue) so I didn't think it was the trail and went further toward the water. I was wrong. There was another trail that supposedly ran along the water and the clearing I saw was indeed THE trail. I took a few photo of the area near the water and went back to the trail, then headed north to trace my way back toward Avenue U. That's my plan, a small section at a time, so that I always travel over familiar territory. Like last time, I exited the trail at Whitney Avenue.
|After a short walk from Gerritsen Avenue and P.S. 277 was the path leading to the trail.|
|Not much snow was around, just a tiny bit of ice on the path leading to the trail.|
|I thought this path was too close to Gerritsen Avenue to be the actual trail, but I was wrong.|
|The trail actually leads back to Avenue U.|
|Looking left of the clearing, Avenue U would be to the left of the photo.|
|Looking along the water, which is to the left of the photo, toward Belt Parkway.|
