Ascent Trip Report

I reached Bar Harbor around noontime. The plan was to hike the Beehive today. I drove around the Toll Road, and after seeing how insanely busy it was, I opted for Norumbega instead. I wanted to hike a mountain overlooking Somesound. The Goat Tr had some decent steepness. The mountain did not provide me the sweeping vista of Somesound that I was seeking. I did get to see Sargent Mtn and also a cliffy area on the other side of Somesound under Acadia Mtn that looked really cool. The mountain had to many trees around the top. But it was incredibly nice to see the Atlantic from the mountains again. I hiked down a different trail and around the mountain back to my car before heading into Bar Harbor.
