Today was free of organised activities, so we decided it was a good hiking day. We reviewed the maps and the hike descriptions given to us by the owner of the house. She described the hike to Penobscot mountain via the Jordan cliff traill as her 11 year olds favourite hike and that she had been doing it since she was 6 or 7. The trail is described as involving metal rungs and log bridges so not for the faint of ...
... Specialised and Trek so once we parked up we went and had a look. For a dollar more, the bikes seemed much better so we quickly got fitted up and off we went.
