Woodsy part of the trail is whatever. The part that goes right along the shore is quite nice though.

Short and sweet. The coastal trails are classic Maine. The non-coastal trails on Isle au Haut are relatively dull.

Maybe it was the heat, but this felt like more work than it should have. Some nice views on this trail.

Mostly wooded, so not much scenery to be had.

Short walk to a relatively quiet beach.

Pretty busy spot for bikes. A good chunk of this trail is wooded, so it won't be non-stop views.

Fairly flat. Probably half of the trail is wooded, but some nice lake views are here too. Pretty busy carriage road!

Nice easy hike. Some good colors in fall.

Definitely a trail where you could take a tumble. I fell twice coming down this trail, and it hadn't rained for a couple days and I was taking my time. I've seen other people take a tumble on this trail. If it's wet, do not do this trail.

My favorite trail on MDI! Done it a few times, and I'm not sure I'd say that it's highly trafficked. Nice views the whole way up.

Nice trail to combine with Parkman Mtn.

I like this trail. However, the east portion of this trail, known as the Norumbega Connector on my trail map, is one of my least favorite trail sections on MDI. It was muddy and buggy and had so many roots! Insane amounts of roots growing all over the trail. Surprised more people don't break their ankle on this relatively flat portion of the trail.

Nice easy walk. During low tide, it can kinda stink when you get near the middle of the figure 8.

Flat walk with a lot of beach for the people to spread out on once they get to the end. Not quite wheelchair accessible.

Super short walk down the stairs. Can be an absolute zoo anytime near sunrise or sunset with cars lined up for a quarter mile waiting for a parking space to open up. Save your sanity and just leave if the cars are lined up on the road.

A very nice walk. The trail is a roundtrip which combines two trails. The part along the coast - which combines the two trails - is the most nice part.

Loved it. Nice long walk and easy

Solid local hike. Couple of nice boggy areas with some birds. Fairly tucked underneath the trees most the hike.

Would be a great trail run with the amount of different trails you can attack.

This is a great family hike. Easy and beautiful views from the top. Great for all ages

Able to complete easily with a 3 yr old who did much of it himself. Good family hike.

Lovely walk

Moderate hike. Trail markers need improving. But it was a great day today.

It was difficult with the snow cover, but incredibly beautiful!

FANTASTIC hike!!! moderate but totally doable for even a beginner. it does get steep towards the top, just take your time. the rattlesnake pool and gorge are worth a stop - so majestic and beautiful! the view from the top is one of the best. warning: the trails are NOT well marked. if it wasn’t for this app and a hiker we passed, we would have been plenty lost. the lookout at the top was almost impossible to find. thinking it may be easier to navigate when all the snow melts. the trails were very slippery - lots of wet leaves - just be careful. our pup loved this hike! happy trails!

Great easy hike. Did with a 3 and a 7 year old. Open areas along the water get hot and sunny while the wooded sections offer shade. Many mountain bikes and dogs. Saw a great blue heron and an egret (I think). Easy footing. Not easy/wide enough for a stroller, but easy enough for the toddler’s little feet! A few benches along the way to sit and watch the birds.
