There's nothing terribly special about this old dirt access road. It does, however, provide a helpful link between the western and eastern base of Acadia Mountain
, making it possible to hike the mountain as a loop. The road is named after Man of War Brook, an oceanside cascade where colonial-era sailing ships would replenish their water supplies.
