7/7/10 The Hadlock Ponds
Still hot and humid but we had stayed home for two days ( I did get caught up in the garden) and Kelley let me know she was bored so we headed for Acadia. I picked trails that were near water so Kelley could get in and cool off. We started on the Hadlock Brook Trail from the Norumbega parking area and took that to the Hadlock Ponds Trail which led us along the Upper Hadlock and then around the Lower and back to our original trail. We then hiked up Hadlock Brook to the carriage road and over to Maple Spring and back on that to the ponds trail and the pond again for a nice lunch spot. Then back to Hadlock Brook and back to our car.

Lower Hadlock Pond
Kind of an odd route but it was comfortable and a good hike. 3-3/4 hours
