Champlain North Ridge Trail (Formerly Bear Brook Trail)

What was I saying about the wind?

This is the hike we did on Columbus Day weekend. We had planned on a longer 5.2 mile out and back hike that would have taken us to The Bowl, but it was just too cold, overcast, and windy to make that idea appealing. The weather doesn't always cooperate with your vacation plans, especially in Maine. Still, it was a nice hike. North Ridge Trail/Bear Brook is probably the easiest and least strenuous route to the top of Champlain... so if you're intimidated by Precipice (like me) this is your best bet to take in all those pretty views without fear of falling to your death.
