Comments
Comments: Managed to sneak this one in just before the rain arrived.

Jordan Cliffs Trail is closed for nesting season. Spring Trail from the upper Carriage Road was a lot of fun with steps, scrambles, cliffs, etc. Penobscot Mountain Trail was yet another nice ridge walk with nonstop views and wild flowers. East Cliffs Trail had a few nice viewpoints, but was also pretty heavily eroded/loose. Deer Brook Trail has been stabilized with steps and waterbars. Nice walk around the western side of Jordan Pond.
