Ascent Trip ReportFog set in on hike from Parkman Mountain. Took Giant Slide Trail down to Carriage Road avoiding climbing down the Giant Slide boulders. Followed 2 carriage roads until reaching bottom section of Giant Slide Trail back to car. Second peak of the day; number 15 for the week. Along with the 6 peaks hiked in 2004 and 2005, the total number of peaks hiked in Acadia National Park now totals 21.
There are various lists for peak hiking in ANP according to Peakbagger. One list references 26 peaks, another 34 peaks; another list has 42 peaks (but really should only be 41 as Eliot Mountain is not within ANP); but counting the other 5 peaks on Isle Au Haut and Schoodic Peninsula, the total would then be 46. It seems like the "official" list of peaks in ANP changes depending on what is classified as a peak and whose list you use; and also due to ANP acquiring additional land which adds new peaks to the list.
