Route: Herd path, road, Elliot Mountain Trail

Wedged this one in between hikes to see if there was any redeeming quality (located outside of the park near Northeast Harbor)...not so much as I could tell, but nice woods anyway.

Followed a herd path behind the gatehouse to the private road, then picked up the Elliot Mountain Trail (marked in survey tape mostly). Map house was receiving new roofing...basically a small pavilion with two maps of the island.

No views from the summit, but I didn't descend the other trails to see if there was a vista elsewhere (it appears there are ledges to the northeast and southwest).
