Hiked this trail on our honeymoon in 2015. Very cool hike with great views.
Nice trail - good way to get to cathedral or saddle trails.
Rocky, but then again the entire mountain is rocky - it is Maine, after all! Love it!
Our favorite day hike in Baxter
This trail can start at Togue Campground and is listed as 3.3 miles, one way. The trail is rocky and rugged, but is beautiful and scenic. I highly recommend it, but it is moderately strenuous. Pla to camp for 1-2 days at Chimney Pond to enjoy the spur trails and sites.
Baxter State Park is a wonderful place. I've never been to a better run park. The scenery is divine, and the facilities kick butt. I stayed in the bunkhouse and met some passionate and friendly folks. Chimney Pond is a place where I would love to stay all summer, and fall. One day I shall return.
