Difficulty-Moderate to Strenuous
Distance 3.3 mile loop
Starting Elevation 70feet
High point 949 feet
A granite staircase built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corp.
Pretty much straight up♥
One ladder and a few rungs..
Allot of huffing and puffing..It was hot..we were all dripping with sweat.
From the top we saw a distant fire…it looked like it was in Southwest harbor…
We leave the high point and take the next trail on the left..
We did allot of snacking
We stopped along the trail for lunch with a Hermit thrush and Black throated green warbler serenade..
After the hike we took a short drive into town and found out that the newly renovated Moorings restaurant had a fire..We drove by and saw the charred and smoking remains..
We then walked around town…
Went back to camp for showers…and then out again..for a drive…
Evening fog coming in
Avocado and Egg over herbs and lettuce…kalamata olives and goat cheese..
Watermelon for dessert.
On the way back..almost dark..we saw two fledgling Barred owls..calling for their parents and food..
A delightful day..
