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
and a pano click for the large view
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.
