Description

This is the southernmost of the Porcupine Islands with an imposing south face. I've not been close enough to observe the landing area, but there appeared to be an overhang to start the routes in the middle that could lead to nicer falls.

Getting There

By boat. Closest harbor with easy access is Bar Harbor.

[NOTE- This island has a stone breakwater "connected" to the mainland. I don't know either the legalities or the logistics of using this to get to and from the island but you could investigate. (You'd at least have to get your feet & legs wet!). A canoe or kayak(s) also might follow the calm water next to this feature to access the island. RHall, ME Admin.]

I noticed this on my recent trip to Bar Harbor while walking on the shore path. Looks like a cool overhang out there on that face! DWS might be tidal dependent... Aug 25, 2016
