Nice views over to Mount Desert Island from the overlooks.

I would not characterize this hike as difficult. Rather it is just long. Today, a perfect winter day, we hiked/snowshoed nearly to the summit before retracing our steps back down and enjoying the view in front of us. Great day, great company and beautiful views to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

There are almost no bad hikes on Mount Desert Island. The Cadillac Mountain South Ridge Trail is one of the longest and has the most elevation gain. Despite that, it is a fairly easy hike. We did it on a cold and windy day and turned back about a half mile short of the summit because we were there to hike together and enjoy the day, not to accomplish some kind of goal unless the goal was to have fun, which we did. The snow was deep in the wooded lower section with drifts to two feet or more. As always on MDI, the areas above tree line were swept of snow by the constant wind. The weather was spectacular except for the higher elevation wind.

This is one of the most exhilarating hikes I have ever done! I did it about six months ago and loved it. If you are afraid of heights, this is not for you. Part of the trail is literally climbing on metal rungs up. Also, be sure you take a good look at the trail map and plan a different trail down that's not too far of a walk from where you parked. YOU DO NOT WANT TO TAKE THE SAME TRAIL DOWN.

A bit intense during a heavy snowfall, but absolutely stunning. Moderate

Beautiful! Great views and plenty of exploring to be done.

Best family hike. It's not a pond that's for sure.
