Moderate hike, elevation gain the whole way. Rockier in the beginning, but there are some nice spots to stop and take pictures or to just enjoy the scenery. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful hike with periodic views as you go along. Hit the peak then went another half mile to the overlook. Well worth the effort for the view. A little muddy but mostly dry and no ice/snow. A favorite early season hike to get warmed up for the season.

I hiked this today with my best friend. we started at the maidens cliff trail, hiked up that, and then looped to this trail. a little disappointed with the summit because there was no view but we continued to go to the oceans look out which was BEAUTIFUL. overall we hiked about 7 miles. when getting to the very wooded part near the summit and oceans lookout, there is less marking which made it hard to stay on path but other than that it was lovely.

Hiked this today with 3 kids 12y, 9y and 5y. It was very cold, especially for late April but we made the best of it! It was a very challenging hike, lots of steep places climbing over rocks. Tons of trees down but we like that sort of thing! The view of the ocean was worth it!

Had fun. Today was icy and the trail was not well marked for a newbie on this trail. Did not complete the entire hike

Beautiful well marked and maintained trial with moderate steps, climbs and some flat plateaus as well. Spectacular views and nice picnic/ table rocks. Not too crowded in September.

Moderate, well-marked hike with a steady incline. Good for various skill levels, saw a range of folks up and down the trail. The panoramic views from the Ocean Lookout are well worth the walk up the mountain - quite something! Also really enjoyed the forested section between the lookout and the summit. The canopy light, moss, tangled root system, and wooden paths make for a tranquil setting.

Little tough in spots to find the trail you want. Ocean Lookout is amazing but summit literally has no view.

Took a cool deer trail/side trail down from Zeke’s Lookout - fab!

Enjoyable hike that provided a good workout. The hike went to Zeke’s Outlook and back. The scenery was not as impressive as other hikes we’ve done in Maine but there were some vistas along the way.
