The Big Hike on The Hadlock Brook Loop in Acadia

On yesterday’s blog, I told you about the Patron Party that I hosted for The Garden Club of Mount Desert.  Once the festivities were over and things settled down, I got to enjoy some very special houseguests – my daughter, Alexis and my grandchildren, Jude and Truman.  I have to admit that I am really enjoying my role of grandmother and I want to share so much of what I love with these precious beings.  That includes hiking on the fabulous trails of Acadia National Park.  A small group of us decided to tackle the Hadlock Brook Loop, a lovely 3.9-mile jaunt that offers level to steep grades, a pond, a waterfall, and extraordinary views.  I took a new book along called The Carriage Roads of Acadia National Park, which proved to be very informative.
