1/31/16 Eliot Mt. and Harbor Brook


Upper twenties. clouds and sun, and no wind. Once again, we did not know what the trails would be like.

We started from Rte. 3 at the Eliot Mt. trailhead and the trail had had some use and was in pretty good shape.


The new trail that starts part way up had less use and more ice. Kelley did not want to use these steps





 But failing to find a way around she eventually came down and we continued on our way.


We found the brook had lots of ice and low water.




 Many of the places Kelley usually gets in the water had ice blocking her way but she found some spots.


Parts of the trail are very close to the stream


A small hole in the ice


The trail was really icy in spots and at a higher point I slid down the bank , thankfully short of the water.

Kelley found more spots to get in the water





 An interesting hike that Kelley liked except for that one spot in the trail. We met a woman and a couple on the Eliot Mt. Trail - we rarely meet anyone - and that made Kelley happy. Parts of the trail were very slippery and I was glad I had brought along a pole I had saved from a previous hike - should have put on my ice grippers.

  1. I would imagine that was quite slippery. The pole was a good idea.
