Where in the woods am I? Mount Phillip

I took advantage of the good weather last Thursday and hit the road to find a hike. Guess what Maine trail I explored by viewing the photo gallery below. Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner gets an internet high five! And stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and information posting on this trail.

I had never been hiking in this area before, but this trailhead was fairly easy to find. Though the trail was short, I spent hours in the woods taking photos of colorful mushrooms, birds and squirrels (not too exotic but I still think they’re cute). The forest itself was beautiful, with tall hemlocks and a variety of hardwood trees – oak, maple, beech, birch — yet to change color for the fall.
