5/12/11 Hunters Brook

Kelley seems to be doing better so we decided to try an Acadia hike. Hunters Brook is one of Kelley's favorites because mostly it runs right next to the brook and she gets all the water time she wants. It's also mostly flat so not a strenuous hike. We Parked on Rte 3 where it crosses the park loop road and walked down to it and then the short distance to the trail head. Once you turn away from the brook the trail starts a gradual climb, crosses a carriage road and then climbs to the Triad. We went only part way up toward the Triad and then turned back and returned the way we came. A very nice hike. 2 hours

  1. Nice photos. Sounds like you and Kelley had a good hike. The fungus resembles the man-eating plant in "Little Shop of Horrors".

  2. Thanks, John. It seems Kelley is doing better-no problems after the hike.
