During our two week stay in Bass Harbor we got into a routine where we picked out a local hike to do in the morning before the temperatures got too high. We explored three really enjoyable and similar hikes pretty much on back-to-back-to-back days… Acadia Mountain, the Ledge Trail to St. Sauveur, and then Flying Mountain.
Each of these hikes was fairly short in duration, but they all had moments when they required more than a walk. We liked the variety of terrain on each of the hikes, and as with every trail we tried on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, if we saw half a dozen people on our travels we would have considered it crowded. A nice vigorous hike and then a sandwich from Sawyer’s Market… hard to beat!
