Starboard Rock

16 July 2013 | Winter Harbor, Vinalhaven
We pulled into Winter Harbor, a longtime favorite on Vinalhaven. There is a 170 ft rock perched over the harbor called Starboard Rock. When the boys were young it was a good activity to burn off some energy. We took several Christmas photos from the top with a grand view of Isle Au Haut Bay. On recent visits the owner had posted No Trespassing signs. Andrew and I had expected a stealth climb today.

We were pleasantly surprised to see that the Vinalhaven Island Trust now has reopened the trail to the top. It takes a small amount of bushwacking from the water to the trail, but the view from the top is well worth the short steep climb.
