6/21/13 Breakneck Road

Gray day but pleasant temperatures. I was feeling a little under the weather so wanted an easy hike and we hadn't done this one in awhile. This was once a road but is now a hiking and biking trail . The 'road' itself is owned by Bar harbor but either side of it are the park.

On parts of the trail you can see where it used to be a road- other sections are just narrow trail.

It didn't take Kelley long to find water

Lower Breakneck Pond pano 6-21-13

There is a large beaver dam between the ponds that you cross to continue the trail and then a short distance along the beavers have dammed a small stream and flooded the trail

We walked to Rte, 231 and then returned the way we had come.

Upper Breakneck Pond

A pleasant two hours - we met only a woman and her two dogs at the very start of the hike.
