Ascent Trip Report

Day 1 at Acadia National Park brought my Dad and I to Champlain Mtn to break us in. The trail had easy to moderate grades the whole way, with good views and a lot of open ledge. It was more difficult than it should have been due to the high heat and humidity, thus we were slowed down and drank a lot of water on this hike. The top was open and rocky with great views in most directions. Spent about 15 min. here and then headed back down.
