    Melora Norman reviewed Tablelands Trail

    7 days ago

    We went up Tablelands to Ocean Lookout, then did the little loop to Adam's Lookout. The connection between Megunticook Trail and Tablelands does not have a sign and is hard to find-- we used both maps and GPS. Misty and muggy, with slippery rocks, but pretty views!

    Melora Norman reviewed Acadia Mountain and St. Sauveur Mountain Trail Loop

    10 days ago

    We hiked this in early winter. It was a very pretty hike, but there was some almost-vertical ice in one spot that made it a bit hard even with spikes, and because there wasn't much snow cover, the choices were to keep taking spikes off or walk the spikes on rock. Great views. We intended to just do Acadia but missed the shortcut and ended up walking in the road after dark from the St Saveur parking lot.

    A pretty, popular, short hike with enough vertical to give you a bit of a workout. Pretty terrain and views. Nice in winter, too.

    Melora Norman reviewed Sargent Mountain and Gilmore Peak via Giant Slide Trail

    14 days ago

    A beautiful, fun hike. The big rocks and scrambles going up the slide trail were a nice bit of challenge; the views from Gilmore, Sargent, and the ridge trail on the way down rival any elsewhere in the park. Very pretty lichen fields. Wouldn't want to do it in rain.

    This is a beautiful, quiet and reasonably challenging trail with lots of variety: streams, a bit of bouldering, alpine flora and fauna...we went up and back the north half in about seven hours. Amazing views.

    We went up this trail in October two days after a rain; it was unexpectedly wet and also covered in some places with slippery leaves. Whatever guide description I used to plan with didn't prepare us for the hazards and difficulties to be encountered. It's a beautiful and interesting trail, but I wouldn't attempt it again unless it was much drier.

    This is a great trail with a variety of beautiful plants and views. There were more trail options than I realized and signage was minimal, so I wished we'd brought a map. It was a hot day, but there were some shady spots here and there. A great hike for an easterner not used to the altitude!
