HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike in the woods. Wish it had a bit of a warm up in the beginning, but it certainly gets your heart pumping right away. The pup loved it.

Hiked in July 2020- moderate hike for us- completed in under 3 hours. Amazing views. Recommend doing the entire loop and not just Acadia mtn since a lot less people do the whole loop so it’s more pleasant. Highly recommend

Very tough up and down from Valley Peak up to Acadia if you go counter-clockwise on the loop. Well worth it for excellent views!

Absolutely one of our all time favorites. Yes, there are some technical parts with rock scrambling, but the views were absolutely worth the effort.

HikingGreat!

Nice trail. If you have issues with your knees then dont go there. Steping through stones and rocks for almost half of the time. The forest and the views are worth it.

We did this in December 2018. it was one of our first winter hikes, and we found it fairly challenging. There was one spot with a vertical rise and ice that was difficult even with spikes. Beautiful views! We missed the Man o War shortcut and ended up finishing in the dark on the road with underpowered headlamps. Boughtt some better ones after that!

Fantastic views even on a cloudy day. Some pretty steep climbing both up and down but I think going left and hitting Acadia Mountain first looked a bit easier. We also skipped Valley Peak to avoid rain, but the hike was still 5.7 miles without it. Parking lot is easy to miss. Make sure you have a printed park pass before coming as there is no ranger station or area to pay on the way in.

First to Review

A great hike with great views. I would say it’s relatively well-marked. A few times we had to stop and look for the blue mark but wasn’t too bad. As far as difficulty I know this trail is rated as moderate but I would say it was hard. There is a lot of rock climbing and pulling yourself up or down depending which way you go. The trail was more like 6 miles and took my husband and me just under 5 hours. It says dogs are allowed but it would really depend on the dog. My spaniel and spaniel/terrier mix would probably have not had an easy time and I’m glad that we left them home. Also I consider it to be lightly trafficked but we also went on a Thursday morning. I highly recommend this hike! Bring a lot of water!!!
