The hike in the beginning up the ledge trail is roots and rocks and a bit steep. However once it levels off there are wooden planks, forest floors, and rock face scrambles. The most amazing views can be seen once you approach the Valley Peak trail. Had a snack overlooking the Sound and other area mountains. This trail was a bit slippery as it rained the night before. My new favorite hike on the quiet side of the park.

Rocky trail with lots of uneven ground. Tough on the knees! The peak of St. Sauveur isn’t particularly breathtaking, but once you start walking along Valley Peak it’s pretty much an incredible view the whole stretch. The little detour for the waterfall is totally worth it, you can easily climb next to or to the top of it and sit in the shade to enjoy the view. We cheated and walked back down Man O’ War, which is a flat path (old access road?). All in all a pleasant hike through woods, steady incline, and beautiful views.

Lost the blaze about halfway up St Sauveur but with the map had no problem finding it! The Valley loop really is what makes this hike special-- awesome views of the bay!!
