4/26/10 - Frohock Mountain

                                
                                                                                           

One goal of this hike was to find the trail to Garey Mountain. It is mentioned in the AMC "Maine Mountain Guide" (though it is not on their map or the one above). We have done several hikes in the area without seeing it.

We started from the parking area on 173 and walked the Ski Lodge Trail to the Frohock Mtn. Trail. This trail is fairly steep until the point where it splits. We went left looking carefully for blazes but found none and continued on to the Frohock summit ( and a brief side path to Derry Mtn.) and a break for apple and water. Both Derry and Frohock are wooded and give only glimpses of the ocean through the trees.

                                                                      

We backtracked to the fork and searched from the trail toward Bald Rock but again found nothing and continued on to a point near the shelters for lunch with a view.

                                                                          

We returned the way we had come. Unlike the hike we did yesterday there were Trillium and Violets in bloom ( I screwed up the pictures) and the temperatures were warmer. 3 hours

  1. Thanks - the Kelley pic took a bit of manipulating because of the contrasty light.
