4/28/13 Cedar Swamp Mountain
Another beautiful day- that's three in a row of shirt sleeve hiking. Seemed like a good day for Cedar Swamp Mtn. via the Sargent S. Ridge Trail. This part of the trail has some minor work arounds for Kelley but nothing she needs help with. It's a pretty trail with good views as it alternates between woods and open ledge.
Two views from Cedar Swamp Mtn.
From there we decided to return by the Amphitheater Trail . The main problem with this route is a steep drop down to Birch Spring which Kelley cannot do without help and she doesn't care for that at all.
We made it down and got on the Amphitheater Trail
Kelley scrambled right down this steep rocky section
because at the bottom was Little Harbor Brook and a swim.
We followed the Amphitheater to a carriage road and that to the Asticou and back to the carriage road we had come in on. We only met two women with a dog on the whole hike- on the way up they passed us and then we met them again as we were all nearing the parking lot. A nice hike on a beautiful day. 3 1/4 hours
