12/25/10 Harbor Brook and Elliot Mtn.

Sunny but cold and windy so we decided on a woods loop that would have us mostly protected from the wind. We started at the Harbor Brook trailhead off Rte.3. The snow was light which was good as this trail closely follows the stream, at times cutting into the side of the bank.

We turned left on the Asticou Trail


And followed it to the map house where we picked up the Elliot Mountain Trail.


This area is a little confusing as there are several other trails not shown on the map and not maintained by the park but eventually you find signs which point the way. This is our first time, I think, to do this trail in winter and it was beautiful. There had been no one else on the trails since the last snowfall except for the short piece between the map house and Sargent S. ridge.






We followed the trail back to the road and that back to where we had parked. A nice hike. 2-3/4 hours

  3. Thanks, Tracy. It does have that feel. Let me know when you want to try the Boyd Path or show me the caves at Day Mtn.
