Easy hike with coastal views. Family friendly in the summer. Icy in the winter and spring.

Absolutely stunning views! Great hike break if you're heading up to Acadia.

So enchanting! Even though it’s mid-April, it was about 35 degrees, windy, and hailing part of the time and even with that, it was a FANTASTIC trail. I loved that we could keep expanding on the original trail and get more mileage. The river trail was so beautiful. Lots of tree damage from the winter, but it made it even more beautiful. Lovely flat hike!

Not a big challenge, but a nice afternoon hike up to a great payoff looking back at the harbor. The amount of elevation gain for the limited distance does mean a bit of exercise but nothing too strenuous. On a clear day in the spring or fall it is a great way to spend a couple hours in the afternoon.

One of the best views in Maine! The last half mile is a pretty good hike uphill. The snow isn’t packed down in all the areas. Hiked up with my running shoes and spikes - worked fine enough! First part of the trail is as wide as a road and perfect for cross country skiing.

Pretty easy hike, dirt road out to trail is pure ice this time of year

I wish that I could review it. The trails were very poorly marked. We had a wonderful day of walking, but never actually located Zeke's trail.

One of my favorites.

great views at summit

There was only one trail sign to Mount Megunticook and that was at the beginning. We thougth we were on the wrong trail because when we followed it we were no where near the All Trails location. Turned back to check signs and there was no mention of Mount Megunticook at the last signage. We continued on and the summit is actually the X with an elevation of 1312. There is no view but if you go about another half mile there is a gorgeous lookout over the harbor. Trail was mostly in the woods with a few outlooks.

Last hiked it on August 31, 1997. What can I saw that has not already been said by many visitors about this spectacular hike?

Best view of Penobscot Bay

I thought this trail is more difficult than a moderate rating. Scrambling is necessary. We came down the carriage road due to the wind and rain today; and it was very easy.

Lots of hiking possibilities through Camden Hills. This particular stretch can be tricky in places and I would not attempt it in bad weather or when it's been raining. Great views. More than a bit crowded though, especially as you get into the main part of the park and I'd hate to see it on a weekend.

Great day. Great hike!

My wife and I loved it. Beautiful hiking! Rated moderate but wasn't all that difficult. Rated a little higher than easy would be better to say. The views were absolutely fantastic. The cross and story associated with it was very sad but good.

I want to let people know that aren't athletes or experienced hikers. This is very doable. It is not easy by any means, but it is very much worth it!!!! Remember lots of water and bug spray. And do not forget your camera!

Was an awesome little hike with our two small dogs. September weather was beautiful and the views of the bay and surrounding ocean was very nice!! Was great for a short hike.

The views along the way & from the top were spectacular. I am an avid hiker but my knees have gone achey recently. I found the bald rock section quite challenging. I did have to be super careful as it was also quite steep. I was determined to get to the top & was glad I made it. Views are enormous. I did ask for a ride back down as downhill is harder on knees than uphill.

Loved it. Great trail, beautiful summit views.

Easy hike. The trail was well marked. The view at the top was amazing. We had packed a lunch and enjoyed that once we reached the summit.

Fantastic reward for a fairly easy and short hike.

Good easy hike. We did not loop, nor lollipop. It was an out and back for us. Felt like 3.5 - 4 miles. Unsure of true distance. Great views. Only thing we didn't love was the double track (triple track, really) for beginning of hike. Once it branches off to single track 1/2 mile from the summit, it felt like a true hike.

The effort to views ratio is quite favorable here.
Somewhat crowded on the trail itself, but there are so many exposed ledges up top that you're sure to find a place of your own to relax and enjoy the views.

Great, short hike.
Amazing views from numerous ledges.

Absolutely gorgeous. But I wouldn't have rated it easy. Easy to moderate. Couple of really steep spots but gorgeous!!

New hikers, fun challenge, kid friendly (14 and 12yo), fabulous views!

great trail. easy enough for a 3 year old.

Nice hike relatively quickly and easy. The story and history you get along with the view was pretty neat.
