MAN O WAR WATERFALLS

I hiked this a few times many years ago and at that time the trail was in very good condition.  The trail is actually an abandoned fire road located along route 102 about an eight of a mile away from the parking lot for the Acadia Mountain Hiking Trail.  It was once believed that pirates came ashore in that area and buried their treasure, so if you search around as we did along the fire road you will find a number of places where years ago people dug looking for the treasure.  As far as I know, no treasure was ever found.
The last time I did hike this trail it was after a pretty good period of rain and the waterfalls was a spectacular sight.
For more information on this area, see my blog post on Captain Kidd's Lost Treasure.

The link below  to another website that has done a really nice review on this abandoned fire road and you will find some nice information on the trail there.
