We heard Acadia National Park had some great trails for snowmobiling so thought we would give it a try.
So we headed to Cadillac Mountain on sleds this weekend. There are approx. 27 miles of snowmobile trails at ANP. Part of it goes up the mountain to the summit and the other part goes through the loop road and part of the east side of Eagle lake to connect at the Park loop road at Bubble road. We planned on doing it all today.
There were alot of hikers and snow bikers heading up the mountain. We passed two snowshoers heading up the mountain and they asked how far up to the summit. I told them I thought it was about 3.5 miles...7 miles round trip...they were going to walk another hour and then reassess...their decision. I was glad that we were on the sleds, I was pretty sure we would make it to the summit today
The views were just beginning to get spectacular when we had to turn around. I tried to get everyone to ditch the sleds and walk the rest of the way to the summit...but I was the only one that thought that was a good idea, so we turned around.
heading back down the mountain we met up with the two that were snowshoeing up the mountain and they were coming back down too. I told them that we didn't make it to the summit either...they saw the tow line and smiled.
only thing left that we could do this day is go to Pat's Pizza for lunch and then drive around the loop road and wish we were on it with our sleds.
