Hiking Pemetic and Triad Mountain – Tuesday– July 30, 2013

Today, our plan was to park at Bubble Pond,
hike up the North Ridge to Pemetic Mountain Summit,
descend the South Ridge to a left on the Pond Trail,
which connected us with the trail to The Triad Summit,
then continue down from that summit to Post 17 on the carriage road
which we would follow to the Horse Stables
where we would get a bus back to the car!!

our “Last” hike before we leave this wonderful place got off to a bit of a “Faulty” start;o((
Check out Sherry’s Post where she explains the details of our mishap;o))
I figured this hike should have been about 4.5 miles…
but we always seem to hike further than what the map suggests.
Today’s hike, with our faulty start, turned out to be about 6.5 miles:o)
My photos pick up the adventure once I get the troops headed up the correct trail.
Even when you head the wrong way, hiking in Acadia is WONDERFUL!!
Every hike has been amazing and much more challenging than we had anticipated.
The hike to Pemetic Summit was no exception!!

  1. Fantastic pictures! Love the one of you two at the top and the one of Tricia up there says it all :) Beautiful.

  2. Really gorgeous pictures Nancy. I love the one of you and Bill at the summit and those two sillies holding up the tree. What a great time even if those steps up were a bit steep for those with short legs. I'm ready to do it again any time!

  3. Good job conquering one of nature's "stairmasters!"

  4. Sadly, I think you folks did more and had a better time in one month than we did in five! Wonderful series on your stay, and I'm praying we have a better 2014. I am determined to see you in Florida :-).
