Flying Mountain

Flying Mountain is one of the lowest peaks in Acadia, yet it offers some of the best views. It can be climbed as part of a short out-and-back scramble or a longer loop.

This scenic trail over tiny Flying Mountain leaves the east side of the parking area at the Fernald Cove end of the Valley Cove truck road and rises quickly to the summit. It follows the summit ridge north to a point overlooking Valley cove, then descends quickly and steeply through spruce woods. At the edge of Valley Cove, the trail follows the shore north over rock slides and under forbidding Eagle Cliff to end at a junction with the Acadia Mountain Trail at Man O'War Brook.

At Valley Cove, the north terminus of the truck road can be located up the bank about 75 yards south from the water's edge. For an easy return to the Fernald Cove parking area, follow the road south for about 0.5 mi.

Bar Harbor Congregational Church

29 Mt Desert St
Bar Harbor, ME, 04609
The Bar Harbor Congregational Church was established on May 20, 1883. The congregation met in the Union Meeting House or "White Church" as it was commonly called. The Town of Eden was incorporated in 1796 and renamed later to the Town of Bar Harbor. A schoolhouse was erected in the village of Bar Harbor about 1820 that was also used by the settlers as a place of worship. When a new schoolhouse was built in 1853, the old schoolhouse was razed and the Union Meeting House was built in its place. All religious denominations used the Union Meeting House until about 1870 when the population of the village of Bar Harbor grew enough to support separate churches. The Congregationalists acquired title to the Union Meeting House and built a granite church on the site in 1888-1889. This church burned in 1942 and was replaced on November 7, 1951 by the present structure that was designed to be similar to the old White Church.
