Parts of this trail are on the difficult side but overall a doable hike considering the distance taking breaks it was doable to get to the Goddard shelter in about 6-7 hours and we are far from being in top physical shape. The biggest struggle is water conservation there’s about a 4-5 mile stretch with no water access without taking a half mile detour to a pond. I would highly recommend doing this hike in late June to mid July if you don’t mind sharing campsites with through hikers we probably met 15 people that were on there way to Maine from Georgia. The views aren’t especially rewarding for how rigorous this hike is
