How I summited 6 mountains during a hike in Acadia National Park

When a new friend of mine suggested we hike a loop that visits six peaks in Acadia National Park, my first thought was: “Oh, she must think I’m in much better shape than I actually am.”

Then she explained that the hike was only about 6 miles long. That’s a peak per mile. Not bad. I didn’t know that type of route existed in Acadia, even though I’ve been exploring the park for several years.

For me, 6 miles is a fairly long hike, but it’s not an insurmountable challenge. So, confident that I wouldn’t sputter to a stop midtrek, I met my adventurous friend, Julianne, at the trailhead at 8 in the morning.
