This was a great hike. Rigorous but do able. I had my 40 lb dog with me and she was ok on the uphill but got spooked on the downhill rocks. I felt the same way. Take care on the rocks if they are wet. Lovely views at the top.

This trail is very beautiful with a lot of great boulders to climb and several water features. Great yellow Fall foliage, as well.

I did this counter clockwise, definitely would do it again but clockwise. I had a 75 lb lab with me who is very good at hiking and rock hopping, but would suggest unless you feel like carrying you heavy dog in some sections of the a murry trail , I would not suggest this , but otherwise it was a great hike ! Not hard as far as humans go.

This hike is a good workout. I would recommend wearing hiking boots and bringing 1 pole wouldn’t be a bad idea. We did it right after it rained and didn’t have much of a problem. Some boulders were slick and watch out for the black lichen. You are rewarded with a fabulous view of Cadillac Mt. to your left and the harbor and ocean to your right. I only gave it a four because I was dinner for 10 mosquitos. Bring bug spray to be on the safe side!

Great challenging hike with some scrambling bits at the start. View is amazing at the top of Dorr!! Perfect day.

Do not go here after rain like I did and nearly kill yourself. Super steep and not heavily traveled. I literally almost died as the rocks were slippery from the rain the day before!
