Went up on a super foggy day and it was still worth it - challenging but not impossible. If you do go up in the fog, I would recommend wearing a raincoat. And don't forget tea and popovers at Jordan Pond House as a reward at the end!

The hike was great, thoroughly enjoyed it. Not for someone looking for a quick hike, take your time and enjoy.

My son and I did this hike today. The day was perfect, cool, clear and no bugs. This is the best time of year to hike Acadia. There were few people on the trail. Felt like we had the trail to ourselves. The views are beautiful and there was nice foliage on the backside of the hike. The hike was rated perfectly. It is moderate with the right amount of challenge.

Great hike especially for early morning. I was the only one at the summit at 8:30 am. Much better than Cadillac in the morning. I recommend starting at the Pond House and starting with the spring trail, head to the Penobscot summit, continue to Sargent mountain and down to Jordan pond. Jordan pond is beautiful, but there is not swimming allowed. If you want to swim stop at Sargent mountain pond between the two peaks. Definitely make sure you have good socks, this hike has a lot of heel pressure.

Beautiful views. Moderate hike. Decently marked trail with cairns on top of the hills. Not many people around, saw maybe 6 people over 3 hours.

This was a great hike. The path down was difficult due to continued boulders in the path and very slippery.
