Great hilltop trail without having to climb the mountain. Beautiful panoramic views of the mountain tops and ocean. Its a place where you are left feeling wide open to the sky. There are a lot of moose on this trail, which is why dogs are not allowed (the moose were consistently charging at dogs on the trail). It is very heavily tracfficed as it is probably the most popular trail in the Cabot Trail Park.

Awesome trail in crystal clear, crisp, fresh air. Spectacular views, beautiful vegetation. Highlight of the Cabot Trail.

Family hike with 4 kids, 11, 8, 2.5, 2month. Wife carried the baby in a carrier, 2.5 yr old in the stroller. Took the rugged back loop which I would not recommend for stroller but also did not regret due to the great look off views. The toddler hiked about half of the back loop while I carried/dragged the stroller over roots and rocks. Wouldn't do the rugged loop again with stroller but not regrets. Main trail is stroller friendly.

Nice, easy and family trail. Very exposed so be advised; under the sun today it was cooking!

Easy trail, not much to look at in between lookouts but definitely gives you a sense of being out in the middle of nowhere.

A must do trail. The western part of the trail overlooks the Cabot Trail Road . spectacular views. The winds increase as you go down the steps but there are areas to sit and take it all in . No dogs allowed so leave Fido home .
