Tired Legs and Mud Brook Trail Hike

This post was written for and first appeared on One Foot In Reality.

We both were sore from all the hiking (yes, hiking using a LOT different muscles than running) and we didn't feel like doing a whole lot of nothing this morning.  However, after we left Gorham this morning and wanted to stop and do a hike

There was a sign for hiking in here and we have been wondering what kind of a hike it is for several years, so today on the way out of Gorham we stopped to do the hike.

What we found was not really a hike, more of a short walk to see this:

While it was pretty cool and all that, it certainly wasn't what we expected. A sort of carved face on a rock, but no hike. While the carving was cool, it wasn't what we were looking for.

So we headed back down the road towards Maine.

When we got to Gilead, we took the right and found a lot of trails, we took a chance on the Mud Brook Trail and it was a nice hike. However, we didn't go to the top of the mountain, we turned around at the big log.

It was a bit tougher than we expected, but sometimes you gotta know when to turn around. My leg started to bother when the trail got pretty steep, so instead of abusing it, it was time to go back down.
