On this beautiful fall day I wanted to try a few Mt. Cardigan trails, so I headed up West Ridge, then took Clark Trail up and down the very windy peak. To add some distance I looped Clark to Vistamont to Skyland, ultimately returning on South Ridge. Vistamont was particularly muddy, with steep sections requiring careful attention not to slip. An advanced beginner, I'd rate this combo loop on the hard side of moderate, with gorgeous views and exciting terrain throughout.

Great hike! We stayed on the Clark Trail to include Cardigan Mountain peak (see our recording) and are glad we did! The Clark trail is pretty busy though, lots of groups. The trails on the east were very quiet and include beautiful views including a stunning view of Cardigan peak. Due to all of the recent rain it was pretty muddy and slippery in some spots. There are also some areas that require scrambling. Highly recommend this hike! It took us about 4 hours but we stopped frequently to take in the many beautiful views and had lunch on the Gilman peak.
