11/18/09 Schoodic and Black Mountain

Another nippy start that turned into a beautiful day-about 50 and sunny. We started at the trail head at Schoodic Beach parking and climbed Schoodic- a nice varied hike with good footing and a few rocky spots near the top. There is a tower on top of the mountain but the top is clear and walking around it you have a 360 degree view. We hiked down the same trail but turned off at the jucntion to Schoodic Beach. This trail is a little steeper but not a problem for Kelley. From the beach we took the Black Mountain Trail which climbs steadily to a ridge, levels out somewhat and has some ledges offering views. We were going to loop back down to the parking area but it was such a nice day we continued on to the mountain for lunch and then backtracked to the trail which took us back down to the car. No problems for Kelley. 4 1/2 hours

  1. Great pics! This is one of my favorite hikes in late fall when you can go all day without seeing anyone rather than summer when it's understandably busy.

  2. Thanks. It is a beautiful place-and,as you say, especially nice when you have it to yourself.
