Jordan Pond, Acadia Hike #4

Jordan Pond, Acadia Hike #4

  • by Garrett Tershel

Jordan Pond is a quiet hike around a pond.  Although this looks like it might be much the same as all the other hikes we did it had its own special charm.  Also giving the kids a break from the strain of the more difficult hikes while learning a little more about the area, priceless.

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

  • by Garrett Tershel

This is not a hike that is listed on the REI Trails app but it was a great walk and a very educational day.  The tide in Maine ranges almost 12ft from high tide to low tide.  During low tide great tide pools are created and available to explore.  We highly recommend the day walking along the shore of Bar Harbor.
