Quite the scenic walk in autumn. It’s closed for the season, but definitely worth checking out!

Easy trail and great views for fall foilage and carriage roads. would reccomend renting or bringing a bike for the carriage roads.

Fun experience! Just be aware that it’s closing down for season on October 13th.

Very nice and beautiful

Stunning Views follow this fairly rigorous hike. Plenty of friendly folks on our way up and down the trail.

Such a peaceful place. Trails are easy to moderate. Fall views of the foliage is beautiful!

I would rate it easy-moderate. Like someone else said it is a mountain. But we love this trail. The views at the top are fantastic. My wife had open heart surgery 2 years ago. We are here for the season so we started our hiking by training on this trail. 4 months later I think she can hike just about anything.

Pretty walking loop trail

Steep is an understatement.
Not marked well is an understatement.
Level moderate is an understatement for a lot of this trail. Marked as a five * because of the challenge, the quarry, and for the beauty. No need to go to the tower as it is a big disappointment.

Nice stop to stretch the legs at sunset on the way to Acadia. Not worth going out of your way for, but nice if you’re passing through and need some exercise.

My bulldog and I had a great hike. we met several friendly people at the top. A steep climb in but the views from the top were well worth it. A great set of memories!

This was a really nice little walk. This is a very claiming walk.

A fun trail, moderately steep in a few places, great views at several points along the trail and at the top.

could still see the top by driving to it. but the walk up was 100% worth the climb. but if you don't want to climb up the rock face you can still see the veiws.

It felt more like a climb than a hike at points, but we still enjoyed it. The views were spectacular! Bring a lunch to enjoy at the top.

Kind of a weird feeling climbing up and then running into an asphalt road... Not nearly as rewarding as the Megunticook climb, but still pretty nice view when you get to the top. It can get confusing, especially when you get to the road, but still a lot of relatively stable land

I think this a moderate to hard trail. lots if trails to access different areas of the mountain side. Each has their own level of difficulty. well worth the effort for the views. Gorgeous!

Flying solo with 4 kids and a dog. It isn’t a flat trail by any means but enjoyable. Like others have said it gets steeper towards the top but the views are amazing!

The views are well worth it!

beautiful scenery and very easy hike

Great reward of a view at the top, not too many views throughout the hike. The last part of the the hike is on the road, wish it took you all the way up. Fairly easy though tiring hike up the mountain. Did this hike with 1 adult and 2 kids under 10.

such a neat place. great for nature/science lovers

Great beautiful hike!!

Gorgeous views of Camden Harbor, Penobscot Bay, and the surrounding mountains. Cool stone tower.

Tons of hiking options here. Great trail network. impressive views!

Favorite hike in region. Great for children. Nice views from top. We often stop to pick blueberries half-way. Nice open areas on top to have lunch.

Hiked again today with full 30lb pack. We found the old ATV/fire road on the left as you head up toward quarry. Taking this allows you to avoid the quarry. Off the fire road, there is a trail on the right marked by orange flagging tape. This is the trail to the top. As others have said, the trail is steep from the get go. It continues this way for @ 0.5 miles past the quarry area, then gently climbs up and down rest of way. Beautiful view at top if you go around the building & tower area. You can see the entire Penoscot Bay. Gorgeous!

Hadn’t planned on hiking this, but since it led back to where I parked ... was definitely better than walking on the Loop Road shoulder.

Had a great time up the mountain. Cardio on the way up, Strength training on the way down. Love this hike in our back yard.
