My friends and I spent 5 straight days hiking as much of Acadia as possible and this was by far our favorite trail. It's very challenging and at sometimes feels quite dangerous. You have to be pretty deep into a hike to make it to this trail but it's way worth it. We did it going down which was a total thrill. I wish I could have taken better pictures but we didn't feel comfortable taking out any cameras. Picture a crazy winding rock staircase straight down (or up).

Very difficult coming down from Sargent Mountain summit. Giant stone steps. Knees and feet were aching.
