Just challenging enough! The views were unbelievable. Be sure to wear waterproof shoes. It rained the day before , so parts of the narrow trail towards the top were somewhat flooded. Totally worth it!!

Great hike and easy trail to follow. Took our family of 5 (kids 16,14, and 12) and along the route are some great views of the bay and surrounding area. At the top, just past the summit is an unmarked trail leading down to a crashed plane from the 50s and the wreckage is still there. Very interesting but somber area. Overall, a great hike.

I love this mountain. The pines against the bouldering hills looks like something out of a movie. Beautiful landscape!

First time in Acadia and this was a good trail to hike. The trail is well marked going up the mountain, but not as good going down. We almost got lost halfway down the mountain due to no markers, but overall a great hike!
