I'm curious how the wetness and bugs would be at Clifton Crags this weekend.  Can any locals let me know?  One comment suggest it's a bad place to be during bug season.  Any other suggestions if not? (Trying to avoid Acadia, assuming it will be packed)

I've been there many times over memorial weekend and always ended up at Acadia because the bugs were so bad.  Maybe it is different this year, but I doubt it!

Thanks Ward!  Do you know anything about how The Camden Hills crags would be this time of year?

Clifton is killer, but the bugs will mess you up. No crowds tho, so that's a plus.

Just talked to my folks, who are close by...bugs are bad this year!
