Amazing, beautiful hike! Very ICY! Take proper precautions

cross country skiing
20 hours ago

Perfect day for cross country skiing especially on the Game Warden trail. This trail is remote enough to keep the snowmobiles away giving you peace and quiet.

had a great time night hiking in the fresh snow.

This trail is groomed in the winter so it makes for a good winter hike. You should wear microspikes as there are some icy sections. Winter views are better than summer.

This was one of the more memorable hikes of my life. I did it late in the season (knifes edge had just iced over a bit), and was the only one on the mountain. And no bugs! I would highly recommend doing this early winter, if of course the park ranger says it’s not too dangerous. There aren’t many days in life that are memorable, but I’d imagine for most that hiking this mountain is one.

This was a lovely winter hike in mid January. The lower half was hard packed snow; the snow was mostly gone from the upper half. A slow running brook provides amazing ice patterns and hoarfrost.

beautiful, spacious air with a nice breeeeze!

Loon Echo recently added some nature information signs which are quite informative and should be great stop and discuss places for families. Thank you LEA.

Was a nice hike! I would say moderate is correct, rock scramble may be a little challenging for some but do-able! Went up the Blue and down the Yellow, yellow trail is marked very poorly so give yourself time to walk down. Have to stop at each yellow marker and find the next at a few points on the way down making it very confusing due to the logging that was done...

The views are incredible. Be advised that currently on the southwest trail it’s slabs on slabs of ice. You will want micro spikes for sure. Great challenge though. Definitely going back

This could be a great trail, but it needs work trimming branches to clear the path and better signage in several places.

Don’t write this one off because it’s short and easy. The view of surrounding mountains from the top is well worth it.

Pleasant walk except for having too many biting insects.

Simply Beautiful.

Great in all seasons.

Perfect trail right in Portland

Made it back to the South Ridge early January for a sunrise visit to Cadillac -- easily continues to be one of the most beautiful, and one of my favorite, trails of all time. Based more-so on length than elevation gain (although there is still a fair amount!), I agree with the difficulty rating of hard. Do not attempt this trail in the winter unless you have proper winter and ice gear -- much of the the trail was completely coated over in ice and snow, and a lot of caution is necessary, particularly on the way down. It was also very cold and on the ridge, you are exposed to the elements. If you are prepared, though, then you're sure to have an incredible experience with some of Maine's finest scenery.

If a sunrise hike is in your plans for any season, be sure to have a headlamp or good flashlight. There are cairns and blazes along the ridge, but depending on the conditions you're in, they may be tough to see (if clear though, then easy to follow for the most part). Take your time and don't go off trail.

I loved this trail. The views over the river were beautiful and the fairy houses were adorable.
