Description

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.

Thanks to guidebook author and photographer, James Kaiser, for sharing this trail description. If youre interested in learning more details about great day hikes, weather, camping / lodging, and geology, check out his book: .
