Ventured down to MDI to try a combo of trails/loops. This loop is weak and mad easy unless you tie it into a 12 mile figure 8. We were going at an easy- moderate pace and up top in 14 minutes and that was with my older dog. If you re trying to bag all the hills in Acadia then using this loop will provide you time to hit numerous others in a day like Acadia Mtn which takes maybe 22 minutes.

We absolutely loved this hike! We went up Perpendicular, not down, so it was some Spiderman stair climbing from this one who is terrified of heights. Razorback was my guy's favorite part of this hike. The views at the top we're stunning (posting pics). This hike kicked my butt. While short compared to what we normally do, the steepness and rock faces took a steadier step. Loved the changes in terrain, the views, and that we saw no one else until the very end. Beautiful!

Step and nice uphill on steps, down has views and is interesting. The summit has no views but a good lookout nearby. Not difficult but step ascent.
Don't wonder about the side track in the recording, its most likely an error. Reduce the altitude accordant to get to the accurate number.
