8/24/14 Eliot Mt. and Harbor Brook

80's forecast near home and 70's at the coast so we headed for Acadia. We started the Eliot Mt. Trail from the trail head on the highway. This is a pretty woods hike. We met a man and his dog coming down and then two women - unusual as we usually see no one on this trail.

The summit is wooded without views but you get a glimpse of the ocean from a ledge near the top

Mostly fairly dense woods so few flowers or insects. We did find some fungi

The hike up had been fairly dry with only a couple skimpy streams for Kelley. We took the Asticou across to the Harbor Brook and it was water the rest of the way.

Semi impressionist Kelley

Kelley really likes this trail and was constantly in and out of the water. We had no deer flies until we reached the brook and then there were only a few and not a problem. This was a very pleasant hike.  2  1/4 hours


  1. The impressionist photo of Kelley is really cool!

    1. Thanks Linda- don't know how it came about but I like it too.

  2. I'd always be on the look out for the ocean view!

    1. Hi Kim-- most of the mountains on the island give a least a glimpse and some have spectacular views
