3/25/10 Gorham Mtn. and Ocean Path
A nice sunny day after three of rain. We started again on the Bowl Trail near the Sand Beach parking lot and took that past the trail to the Beehive
To a connector trail
that took us to the Gorham Mtn. Trail. No snow or ice today and less water than expected after all the rain. This is Sand Beach from the trail.
This is a fairly short and easy hike and we soon reached the summit and continued over and down toward the ocean. We met a nice couple ( they have come here to hike from Connecticut for 40 years) with a large friendly Chocolate Lab that Kelley got to play with which made her very happy.
When we reached the Ocean Path we turned right toward Otter point and soon saw a man below us on the rocks painting.
Most of this trail is flat and open but there are a few sections with trees and rocks.
When we reached the end of the trail we turned back and followed the trail back past the Gorham Trail and on to Sand Beach enjoying the views, the sun, and the breeze. 3 hours
