This trail feels like longer than 7.8 miles, but it's definitely nice! The trail started out flat and after crossing the river a few times, you end up hiking up a mini stream. This blue trail meets up with the Appalachian Trail (labeled white), where it got pretty steep. I got to the parking lot when the rain just had stopped so everything there was very wet and hiking up the steep section was challenging. The top has a 360 view of the area! Also, there are tons of waterfalls on his trail along the river, which make the trail very enjoyable.

What an amazingly well kept trail! Not to hard with lots of places to see the breathtaking flora and trees. I would do it again and again if I could. It was a little muddy in some places like around more "rooted" areas, but these spots were very easy to avoid.

The Grand Canyon of Maine. beautiful stops along the trail, well marked trails. it's not easy, but it's not very difficult either. make a whole day out of it. I have hiked this trail dozens of times and I still keep coming back. Good for kids, dogs, adults, etc.

Great view at top, steep rocky incline
There is a trail on back side with parking and short walk for those that would prefer an easier walk
