4/5/10 Looking For The Pothole Trail

From Steve Perrin's book

This was an attempt (on a beautiful day) to find a trail not on any of our maps. It was described in "Acadia the Soul of a National Park" by Steve Perrin. We started from the Canon Brook trail head on Rte. 3 and followed it to Dorr S. Ridge. We were able to find the extension and followed it to the creek but could not determine where the trail went from there. After stomping around in the bush for awhile we gave up and returned to the extension and back to Canon Brook which we took to the A Murray Young Path. This is a pretty trail through woods at first

with some open areas

But then ( and we have had problems here before) becomes quite steep with huge boulders to get over and very difficult for Kelley. At this point we turned around and returned the way we had come.

Even though she looks serious here Kelley liked looking for the Pothole Trail-lots of water and new places to explore.

Near the end of the hike there is a large pond and Kelley got to enjoy a real swim before heading home. 3-1/4 hours


  1. That's an interesting gaze by Kelley. (What was she thinking?)

  2. Thanks for commenting guys. She is a very nice dog. Maybe she is thinking we are due for an apple or lunch and what am I waiting for?
