Gents,
Some friends of mine are planning a trip to Bar Harbor / Cabot trail.
I remember that there was a time of year when the bugs (black fly??) come out... Is that the case? If so - when is it?

Also, seems that the Ferry service is no longer offered (would be nice to save some riding time to Nova Scotia)... Is that the fact?

Of course, I will search the Web, but you, local guys, may be in the know ;)

Thank you!

Black flies in spring usually, when temps. going up and lots of moisture. May to early June. Portland ferry no longer running; Bar Harbor to Yarmouth N.S. not sure; but think one from St. John to Digby still in service. A nice afternoon ride, making sure you
have accommodations in Digby area in advance. If you're not a camper, we find bed & breakfast (w/private bath) a neat way to go in Canada. Anything else, contact me, ride the Maritimes a lot.
