Maiden’s Cliff

Maiden’s Cliff in Camden, Maine was a great quick-ish hike, perfect for beginners and also very pet friendly! We did a loop – to get the most miles in, but there’s many variables of this hike, and all take you to the same stunning view! Parking for […]

Precipice Trail

Precipice Trail is one of our favorite trails in Acadia National Park. It provides a nice thrill in a short hike. It starts ascending almost immediately, and you encounter rungs and ladders. The view was totally worth it. We got a little confused when we hit a cave – it almost appears as thought you might climb over it, but then you can’t really see […]

Saddle Trail – Katahdin

Hey! It’s DD. in 2016, I was recovering from a knee injury, so I wasn’t event sure that I could hike Katahdin.
