It's a great trail, not to well marked, which means you need to pay attention, it's a challenge and enjoyed. We started at 10:45 got back at 17:30. The trail has got to be 6+ miles total. We took 1/2 hour on Sargent and 10 minutes on Parkman.

Made it a loop by going up Hadlock Brook then to Bald Peak, Parkman Mt, Gilmore Peak then up to Sargent. Stayed 30 minutes on top then headed back down Hadlock Brook. Lots of up and down with some steep stretches but beautiful.

You can take Hadlock Brook trail on the return as an alternative.

Superbe sentier. On obtient des points de vue superbes. Mes enfants de 8 et 9 ans ont bien suivi le rythme :montée, descente, plat... Mais il est très rocailleux.

A great trial with some amazing views. The only real issue I had was the alltrails filter said it was good for dogs, which it is, but there are some tricky spots to navigate if you have a large breed that might be difficult to climb down some of the rocks.

Multiple peak assents with spectacular panoramic views, intertwined with an equal number of lower creek and spring crossings combine to make for one of the best hikes in Acadia.

Great trail, wasn’t sure the direction of the loop so I did a counter clockwise route, probably easier to go clockwise but I wanted to get the longer part out of the way and save the peaks for the end. I believe this is just short of a 5 mile hike based on my trackers.
