awesome trail with some gorgeous views...high steps and rungs. Challenging in places but worth the effort!

First I'll say this hike has amazing views, and as you ascend they get even better - totally worth conquering your fear of heights for.

Second, I'll touch on the difficulty...this is not what I'd call a hard hike exactly. The steepness is probably what gives it that rating. You do need to be able to scramble and climb a bit, but nothing too difficult if you're in decent shape and flexible. I'm not a fan of heights really, but I've learned to calm myself and focus on climbs like this - there was only one part where there was no iron rungs to pull yourself up that was really exposed, but even then - just take your time, focus and it's not a problem. Having said all that, I've hiked Angel's Landing, so these heights were not quite as scary. If you're a little weary, I'd make sure you do it with a friend to assist you if needed.

Lastly, this hike is FUN! If you like climbing and a little scrambling, this is much more fun that a normal hike.

Definitely recommend for anyone in moderate shape!

Yesterday I did it with my friends! It is definitely my favorite trail in Acadia! It is very challenging but doable as long as you are not afraid of height and weather cooperates.

The A. Murray Young Path is a tough path involving boulder hiking and at times, mild climbing.. the more direct path to the mountain is well signposted and relatively straight forward. Great views at the top.

Amazing view for not a lot of effort. I was a bit scared in a few spots with not much foot room to stand on and lots of people coming the opposite direction. Definitely a great hike.

I loved it, I took Teds advise and went left starting out. Def thanked him in the end. And enjoyed the fresh pop-over after the hike. It was gorgeous all the way around.
