I had fun re-visting this one last fall. It was just as neat a whack as I remembered it. But the Mt. Kineo trail from the other side is much more interesting....albeit longer. 8)

I did not mind the hubbard brook side as it was just long enough for me to not give up, turn around and go home. I was looking at something under five miles and this hit the spot. The elevation gain was a bit much but I was looking for antlers so too much up and down.

I'm going to have to talk with Keith. He has been a bad influence on you. :lol:

Any ticks? I don't usually worry about them up north but lately any area that seems good for moose makes me think it must be crawling with the little bastards. I just read an article on how 75% of the moose calves are dying from tick infestations lately. Too bad for them, and us, someone can't come up with a spray to wipe them off the face of the earth! :D

I don't understand why you didn't also do the nearby, delightful Mt Cushman hike again. It was so much fun the first time!

I think I had two on me. I know one was attaced to my foot when I changed (found it when I got in the shower) and the other one fell off my shirt on to one of the dogs.

I thought about it but having done it that time with you and in winter two years ago (worse woods with snow) I decided to pass.

I don't use the word "hate" a lot when it comes to hiking (well, except when Salty's name comes up), because any day out in the woods is better than being at work. But two hikes I will never do again are Mt Cushman, and anything involving The Link trail near Caps Ridge.

I think that's called "delirious" 8)

I challenge you to come up with a happy-face picture of me on the Link trail. :lol:
