guess which trail is super buggy...guess who forgot to bring bug spray... don't forget it cause you'll regret it lol also make sure you do a tick check because I found 2 on my puppy's face when we got back to my truck... otherwise a really good hike with some great views also got to see a deer within 20 feet of me and pretty sure I heard a bear..

Great trail! There were a few spots that were a little bit difficult to hike with a dog, so I would suggest not bringing your furry friend unless their well behaved on a leash. But the views were amazing!!

Very pretty views, much of trail goes through a tree farm with much of the natural scenery cut down. Not extremely challenging and lots of parking. No snow or ice on 5/12

Very well marked trail with educational plaques along the way. Some logging at the bottom of the trail. Very enjoyable and good for SoCal distancing. I was the only one on the trail.

Great short little trail. South ledge is very steep. If you have knee problems I recommend debating between a short up or the long down.

Fun trail. Went up to the north outlook first. A bit steeper hike that way. Lots of people on the trail. Trailhead packed and cars parked on Route 2. Beautiful day for hike.

Amazing, hard, I’d say it’s way more than moderate.

This was a great hike with 2 vistas. Mile one and three were mostly dry and rocky. The connection hike between the vistas was still snow covered. Trail was mostly well marked, with a few exceptions. Took 3hrs with a 6 & 10 yo.

Great hike - perfect distance and elevation for a 2 hour trek (note review that says trail is 4.5 miles is wrong) in nature (family of 4, 2 teens). Snow is almost all gone - we brought spikes but not needed. Not much mud/wetness. 2 great view points plus a couple nice signs along the way pointing out some Maine features. Trail is definitely loved - parking lot full (7 cars with 2 on side of road) - everyone was practicing social distancing so all good. Note - if you start on the north trail about .8 mile in you get to some steeps that the trail signs seem to indicate that you go up. Don’t go up - sharp left to stay on trail.

This trail loop is 4.5 miles and took me 3.5 hours with snowshoes with soft snow and icy/rocky spots on the South Ridge. Bring food, water, headlight, crampons or snowshoes if going Jan-April. South Ridge is tough going up and down. Suggestion is to go up the north side to the highest elevation and then go back down the same side in the winter. The section from the peak elevation to the South Ridge (or South Cliffs) can be both icy and really narrow at times, so should be approached with caution and with a buddy or two for safety. Views are fantastic at the higher elevations - snow pillowy soft as well (north side only).

Took this route hoping to get a view of Sunday River, however it turns out there are no real outlooks in that direction. The trail does not reach the actual summit, though the outlooks at the cliffs provide nice views. Winter conditions are reasonable with minimal ice and moisture.
