Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine

Saturday, September 28 through Monday, October 14

We flew to Portland, Maine, then drove to the Burlington, Vermont area for two nights, exploring Burlington and the Vermont countryside. We then spent a couple of days in northern New Hampshire, including taking the Cog Railroad up to the top of Mount Washington. Maine accounted for about 2/3 of the trip, where we spent 11 nights on Mount Desert Island, hiking on various trails and carriage roads in and near Acadia National Park in increasingly stunning beauty. This trip featured our first (and second) one-way hike at Acadia, which involved using the Island Explorer buses, which we've never done before. Advice: use the buses if you can. At the end of the trip, we drove back to Portland, then flew back to Oklahoma.

I tracked the trip (mostly) with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver). The problems:

NOTE: the downloadable GPX tracks are the full GPX files, while those shown on the provided "view map" links are simplified (with minimal effect on geographic accuracy) for much faster viewing.

Original GPX tracks are unedited, unless otherwise noted. If you wish to poke around in the subfolders, you can find all the GPX files I collected during the trip from the three sources noted above. If they are not in the "ForDisplay" folder, they have not been edited, and may have significant holes, errors, etc.

Businesses are named below for reference only. No endorsement should be inferred.

Topographic maps (1:24,000) for the longer hikes are available via "Topo" links.


All tracks are from the Bad Elf GPS Pro+ unless otherwise noted.
