Beautiful trail and views! While not difficult overall, it does have a few of steep sections. Well maintained and marked. “Steps” of rock and wood make the steep sections doable. Wildflowers, moss and a huge variety of trees, bushes, ferns and other plants make for a beautiful hike.

Beautiful trail, definitely recommend this as part of the loop trail!

Did the Anvil in and East Trail out + rock hoping on the shore back.
The kids (9/11) loved the latter part, I would rate the Anvil as the most interesting section. Very quite and beautiful forest with overlooks once in a while. Quite and not challenging but loved it for the nature experience. Nor hard bit also not boring easy.

Fun, short hike. Trail had everything from soft paths through forest to some scrambles up boulders. challenging enough to be interesting, easy enough for a casual hike.

Nice hike to a high point. Good views and not so crowded.

This is one of the best Maine hikes. Beautiful forest (lots of moss and wild blueberries), scenic overlooks, topographical changes, and it ends up at the coast! At points, it is a bit difficult to find the way, or to scramble up or down the rocks, but definitely worth it.

Nice views over to Mount Desert Island from the overlooks.

I loved this - short but quite challenging with rock scrambling. I did a loop and went up Anvil, over and down Schoodic Head Trail, and back to the start via the Alder Trail. I did the 2.65 loop with my dog in about 75 minutes.

We did this down from Schoodic Head and found it pretty easy going. It just seemed longer than what the map said. Combination of steps and roots and ups to go down.
