Sunny! Temperatures in the 60s- a 'Ten'. We headed for Acadia to get in a good hike after all the rainy days ( next few days promise more rain). We started from the small parking area at the trail head for Harbor Brook and took that to the Asticou and that to Sargent S. Ridge to Cedar Swamp Mtn. where we shared an apple, enjoyed the view and returned the way we had come.

Great hike- lots of water for Kelley on the Harbor Brook sections, a gradual ascent with only a few easy work-arounds for the girl. We met two friendly couples on our way down- one on Sargent and one on the Asticou. 4 1/4 hours
