Dorr Mountain
Acadia National Park
4.0 mile loop (Emery Path > Schiff Path to summit > Gorge Path > Helmock Trail > Hemlock Road) 
~1100 foot elevation gain
Meeting Location: sieur de monts nature center parking lot, 9am sharp
GWH trail rating - YELLOW: Moderate hike, well signed, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000 ft, low altitude. Novice hikers welcome! 

Excited to go to ACADIA for our March hike! 
No entrance fee between October-May :) 
The parking lot listed as the meeting location is currently closed due to flooding, so check back for updates as we get closer to the date if we need to move the meeting spot and for what gear might be required because we all know March in Maine could bring any weather! Also would be down to carpool with anyone from the Augusta area. Wanted to get this up early so people could get it on their calendars.
