A cloudy cool start but the weatherman says it will get warmer and we will get some sun. We hadn't done a real hike in several days because of the rainy weather so this was good news. It did warm up a bit but no sun- and no rain.
We started from Little long Pond parking and took the Friends Path over to the pond, followed the pond to Jordan Stream Trail> carriage roads> Asticou Trail> Elliot Mtn.> down to Harbor Brook trail> Asticou Trail> carriage roads> back to start. As I have said before, Kelley likes this hike because of all the water. She was also excited to be back on the trails rather than walking around the neighborhood.
There was no wind and I was hoping for some nice pictures of spring wildflowers but there were none to be seen. There were new leaves and buds on the trees and bushes.
Cobblestone Bridge- the only one of the 17 stone bridges to be made of this material.
All in all a nice hike in spite of no sun or flowers. 3 3/4 hours
