A hike up Precipice Trail on Champlain Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine

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 … Continue reading Precipice Trail

Beech Cliffs to Beech Mountain

Hey! It's DD. Jess, Nick and I wanted to do something off the Main Island in Acadia (to avoid tourists in peak season), with a bit of a challenge and some views. We decided on Beech Cliffs to Beech Mountain, in Southwest Harbor! We parked at Echo Beach, which you need a park pass for, … Continue reading Beech Cliffs to Beech Mountain

Tunk Mountain Hike

Hey! It's DD. As you know I am working on hiking 35 mountains this year, and I am getting there, slowly. I had heard about Tunk Mountain for a while, and my friend Lindsey (who you probably remember from Borestone Mountain!) was totally down for the adventure. We decided to find the trailhead via Google … Continue reading Tunk Mountain Hike

Borestone Mountain

Hey it's DD! It was a beautiful late spring day in April and I decided to tackle a mountain that had been on my list FORRR-EVVV-ERRR - Borestone Mountain!  Borestone is a mountain it seems like everyone that has grown up in Maine has a story about, so it had been on my mind for … Continue reading Borestone Mountain

Cannon Mountain in the Winter

DD's friend Kaylie posted a facebook status looking for partners to adventure with her this weekend, and of course we were all over it! Her original plan was Tecumseh, which is a great 4,000 footer, but we had been talking about bagging Cannon Mountain in the winter, and she was game. Our mutual friend Ashley … Continue reading Cannon Mountain in the Winter

Mount Waumbek to Starr King Summit

Hey! It's DD. We hiked the LONGEST 2.6  miles (up) of our LIVES on this mountain up Mount Waumbek to Starr King  - but it was worth it. (Isn't it always?) Our friend Jess S. joined us for this hike. She recently geared up and bought some gaiters and microspikes, so this was her first … Continue reading Mount Waumbek to Starr King Summit

Champlain Mountain Hike

It was a beautiful bluebird day when Jess, DD and Willow set off to Acadia National Park to hike Champlain Mountain. The initial plan was to hike in the White Mountains and bag another winter 4,000 footer, but the weather down south was iffy. So we opted for a lighter day in Acadia, which we … Continue reading Champlain Mountain Hike

Mount Tecumseh

DD & Willow here!  You all know by now that Willow adores winter.  She is the one who exclaims with glee every time the white stuff is falling and love to spread her love of winter with others whenever possible, or at the very least, annoy those around her who hate winter with her excitement. … Continue reading Mount Tecumseh

Sargent Mountain

It was a beautiful day, to begin with. We've had some AMAZING weather here in Maine this season. Literally perfect. DD and Willow needed a little outdoor therapy - and we're lucky enough to live oh so close to Acadia National Park - so we decided to take advantage of our beautiful backyard. This was … Continue reading Sargent Mountain
