Moderately difficult. Recommend you hike it CW so as to view Somes Sound when going downhill. The fire road was a yawner.
Note - The Valley Cove Trail is currently closed.

Did this trail a few years back, nice vistas and a good moderate hike. Challenging but not as crazy as the iron rung trails.

Great hike, but not really "easy". You did have to watch your step as there was some scrambling to get your footing. It was beautiful though.

Everything in Acadia is beautiful but I wasn't really blown away by any means. Still a nice hike.

This was a fun, short hike but it should not be labeled "Easy." There is a lot of scrambling on the back side. It's not strenuous, but it is challenging. If you aren't into scrambling, I would not recommend this. And I don't know how you would get a dog down the backside.

Agree that this might be more moderate but amazing, easy short hike. Definitely recommend
