The little town of Trenton (population 1,481) is perched on the last point of mainland before entering Mount Desert (pronounced like the sweets you eat after dinner) Island making it truly the “Gateway to Acadia.” The views of the mountains and water are great and we never get tired of them. The campground we are staying at sits on a bay which not only provides more quintessential Maine water views but a superb swimming hole for our pooch. The tide comes and goes twice a day so the scenery is quite dynamic. Not to mention the fact that we are right at the entrance of the RV park so we see rigs come and go every day. This is RV workamper village!
The town has three lobster pounds to keep our seafood appetite satiated. It's the kind of homely town with a pancake breakfast at the firehouse, white clapboard houses with summer flowers in the planters, and boats bobbing in the water. Perfect summer home if you ask us.
We discovered a nature trail a few miles away which has become a hit with Spirit. The community trails wind through the pine forest and lead into a natural bog. The trail is lovingly maintained by volunteers and plants are nicely marked for curious hikers looking to learn about the flora.
