8/14/17 Mariaville Falls

We started out for Harbor Brook ( at Acadia) even though I was not looking forward to the drive. As we neared Ellsworth  (about half way time wise) I saw a road that I thought went to Mariaville Falls. We hadn't been there in some tome and never from this direction but it would be a shorter drive and a change... Turned out I was wrong about the road and after stopping for directions we finally found the preserve.

As elsewhere, the water in the river was low

Not a lot of water

A bit more

The falls are of the step variety and not at all impressive with the low water.

A wildflower I had not seen before

A little more water where the river takes a bend

Another view of the river looking south

One last dip before the car

A pleasant small hike - a little over an hour - and Kelley did well except for one set of steps where she had to be helped. They have done a lot of work on the trail and it is easier to walk except for Kelley,  those steps. She first tried to find a way around but couldn't and had to accept my help.
