Another near perfect day with sun, little wind, and temperatures around 60. Our friend came along again to ride her bike while we hiked. We started from the trailhead on Rte. 3 and went up and over the mountain to the Asticou which took us to Harbor Brook. Harbor Brook brought us back to Rte. 3 and a short walk along the road to our car.
The Eliot Mt. Trail is mostly through woods with little water other than an occasional small stream
We met a nice man on our way up- his first time to hike the trail and, I think , the first time we have met anyone on this trail.
There are no views from the wooded summit but some through the trees from the ledges near the top
There is also a plaque with some historical information
Kelley was very happy when we reached the Harbor Brook section of the hike and was into the water where they are building a new bridge. This section shows how the water has dropped since our last visit
There was still lots of water for Kelley in most of the stream, including some fairly deep pools. In some places she walks along in the stream as I walk the trail- until she comes to an obstacle and rejoins me.
There is a spot that we always stop for lunch and Kelley knows it and runs ahead when we near it. Some ripples at our feet as we ate.
