Comments
Comments: The trails I took were mostly dry, with a few small areas of wet trail and mud, mostly around the Hadlock Brook Trail, Grandgent Trail, Maple Spring Trail, and Sargent Mountain Pond. Descending the East Cliffs Trail was tricky at times due to steep grades and wet rock/ledges.

This was an absolutely beautiful, if insanely crowded, day to explore new territory in Acadia National Park. Excellent views and scenery, challenging trails, and insanely nice weather made for a hell of a day.
