JOIN US IN ACADIA - for 1 to 4 nights - we'll be hiking, biking, kayaking & sightseeing in Acadia National Park including a day trip to Swan Island.

We will plan activities from Wednesday, May 31 thru Sunday, June 4.

IF YOU CANNOT STAY FOR THE 4 NIGHTS -- then arrive & leave when you can (we will work out the meet up details closer to the date). Any questions – just email me via the GO site.

We are hoping to do our Swan Island day trip on Friday (June 2nd) - with some easy/moderate biking (to get around the island), hiking & lunch. We will take the 9 am ferry to Swan Island (about $17 round trip with bike)- please wait to book the ferry in case weather changes our plans.

1. This event is subject to weather conditions. We’ll wait to closer to the event date to determine activities we will do. Obviously all activities are optional.

2. You will have to arrange your own transportation & lodging.

3. Some locations in Acadia require that you purchase an entrance fee - but many of the activities we will do will not require payment of this fee.

Since all activities are optional - Let’s, at least, try to meet for dinner at the end of the day.

We will plan a hike or walk every day – all hikes are 6 miles or less with a maximum 1,200 foot elevation gain. Planned hikes will tend to be in the mornings and finish in the early afternoon – allowing guys to do other activities in the afternoon.

We will plan a bike ride most afternoons. Bring your bike / ebike or rent one. There is a network of carriage trails.

There are ocean paths and gardens that promise spectacular views. These involve fairly easy walking.

There are numerous other outdoor activities to do like:

Touring the Park Loop Road - (entrance fee required)
Hitting Sand Beach
Explore Downtown Bar Harbor

We will work out the exact meetup locations once everyone has signed up.
