Duck Brook Bridge, Acadia

Standard

Tucked in behind Bar Harbor, Duck Brook Bridge is a place that most visitors to Acadia don’t get to see. Despite its proximity to town, the somewhat secluded bridge and brook are usually passed up in favor of more popular spots like Sand Beach, Otter Point and The Beehive. Built in 1929, the 200 ft wide three-arched bridge spans a relatively deep chasm through which the Duck Brook runs.

This is a beautiful spot in the fall when the leaves start to change color, but on this early summer morning the greens were intense and the brook was moving fast. In the photograph below I found a little “crack” through which just about all of the power of the brook was being funneled… cool spot.
