best hike of my life. most magical 2.5 miles (?)-it was like walking through candyland. The paths were well marked and easily traversable, the paths a beautiful blend of human touch and natural features. So many different microcosms to walk through. Thoroughly enraptured and in awe of Acadia. I don't know what Jerry T's reference point is for hiking but I think they may never be satisfied if they rated this hike 3 out of 5.

Very rooty and rocky in the part along stream. Hard to follow blazes in spots. Not the best way to hike to Sargent but accomplished as part of my loop. Would choose other trail up to Sargent if not for wanting to loop between several peaks.
