We hiked the 1/2 mile gradual trail up to the Thuya Garden. The entrance to the Asticou Terrace is easy to miss...look for it on the right at a small parking area just past the Asticou Lodge going toward Seal Harbor. You have to cross the street to enter the slight incline for the first tier. There is a covered bench near this entrance. Then continue to climb the zigzag trail to the pavilion and enjoy a wonderful view of Northeast Harbor. Climb further and you will reach another rustic covered seating area with still a beautiful (higher) view of NE Harbor. If you keep going another 10 minutes you will reach Thuya Lodge and and Garden. This time of year they are planting so don't expect much for your effort. Hint: if you choose not to take the moderate hike just continue toward Seal Harbor and you will see the road to Thuya Lodge on your left and drive to the gardens. Either way it is a nice find. All free but watch the traffic!!
