did this on a gravel bike, it's not really mountain bike terrain, but All trails doesn't have gravel, adventure or cyclocross as an option. nothing too challenging in terms of terrain, some decent climbs and there are some fabulous views.

This is important: If you follow the "Around the Mt." signs, you will walk only 12.8 Miles. It is also called the Carriage road, The trailhead is just behind the Jordan Pond House. PM me for any question.
