Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

7/5/15 Eliot Mt. and Harbor Brook


Today we decided to skip the new trail and do the loop we usually do.

Start of the trail


No ponds or streams on this section but Kelley finds water anyway - beside the trail


  a little further along


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


From the other side of Eliot we took the Asticou to Harbor Brook - real water at last.


The trail swings away from the brook for a short distance ( mostly it's very close to the stream)  but crosses a small stream.


While she was in the water I found two White Admirals huddled together.


Kelley was in the brook numerous times and for some short stretches walked along in the water beside me on the trail. She was also able to find pools deep enough to swim.

Couldn't decide which of these I liked best so I'm posting them both.





A beautiful day but it did warm up into the lower 80's after a start of about 70. We rarely meet anyone on these trails but near the end we met two nice women who had hiked it several times and said we were the first they had ever met.  2  1/2 hours
