New, No…Restored !…More Acadia Trails

Based on this article, I plan to get up to Acadia and hike these newly cleared historic trails.  Big news for hiking fans. Microadventure coming up!

Here’s just a teaser from the article.  “Fifteen years into the rehabilitation campaign, 12 miles of those trails are reclaimed. The most recent were the 1915 Homan’s Path, featuring 400 spiraling granite stairs; the Penobscot South Ridge Trail, with sweeping views of the Atlantic and the Cranberry Islands; and the 1890s Quarry Path, where granite for the Congressional Library, Brooklyn Bridge and Philadelphia Mint was once mined.”
