|Dare you to climb up and sit there!|
|We were in search of the trailhead to Schoodic Mountain which we never found, but we found this, the Schoodic Bog!|
|An Osprey perched way up high, was keeping a watchful eye on us!|
That's Schoodic Mountain to Mike's left, but where is the trailhead?! We've heard that the views from the top are amazing, good luck getting there! We walked further down
the Down East Sunrise Trail which is pictured here. It's an 85-mile multi-use corridor which connects Ellsworth to Ayers Junction in eastern Maine. We walked over to the base of the mountain and continued for a about another mile or so, but the trail to the top continued to elude us! Very frustrating!!!!
We brought our bikes along on this trip and rode the popular loop road on the Peninsula. It is a six-mile one way road that offers views of lighthouses, sea birds and forest-draped islands. Along the way, we locked our bikes and hiked one of the four trails in the area, the trail that led up to Schoodic Head. It was pretty amazing.
