Awesome unique trail with mountain on the island. During summer - ferry to this island works every hour from 9am till 6pm, and coming back on :45 of every hour till 6:45pm. Indian trail is steep and rocky, bridal is much easier way back. On the peak you’ll find approximately 5 floor high tower with complete 360 view. Not recommended for people who are afraid of heights unless you go bridal trail up and down that way you can go with dogs. Have fun and good luck, travelers! :)

Went up Indian Trail and down Bridle. I’m out of shape, so the hike up was well worth it!! Take your time if you’re not in shape and stay hydrated. Amazing views along the trail and of course - at the summit!

Hiked up the Indian and down the bridal trail. Amazing views up the Indian trail and a 360 view on top of the fire tower. Well marked and fun hike! There was some scrambling up rocks but over all a moderate hike.

This trail was through very pretty woods. Good spots to stop and have lunch or take a swim under the falls on a hot day. Fees for anyone under 18 years old is free. Adults over 18 are $15 per person, not per car. I would recommend water shoes for crossing the river. It is right at the beginning of the trail, so you can leave your car with water shoes on and switch to your hiking shoes after you cross. This is a moderate trail with a steady incline. My kids (ages 11,12 and 14) did 6 miles without a problem. There are some steep drop offs at the lookouts however, so it may not be best for very young children.

Great trail. Strenuous enough to make you feel like you accomplished something, but not so difficult that you’re exhausted after. Bring water shoes as you’ll have at least one place to walk through water up to your knees. Very slippery! We had to do that at Screw Auger falls as well because of the rain and water levels being high. Definitely take the rim trail up, keeping in mind that it is significantly more strenuous and involves more scrambling over roots and rocks. It was raining the day we did it so that created a lot of slippery situations. We then took the Pleasant River road (still a trail not a road) back down. Some of the labeled viewpoints have become overgrown and are not necessarily worth the extra walk off the trail. The one at Screw Auger Falls is worth it. Many of the others the view is no better than the trail itself. Make sure to bring a towel and bathing suit so you can swim and climb through some of the rapids at the end!

We hiked Indian trail up and Bridle down. Even on a cloudy day the views are amazing. Rain earlier in the day made the rocks on the Indian trail slippery and I admit I was a little nervous with my 7 year-old. Would love to return this fall and hike the back side.

great trail very well marked a beaten path all the way to the top! had a lot of really cool steps along the way! its definitely a moderate trail. I'm not the most in shape person but I made it with lots of stops. to foggy today to see the view and the fire tower is not safe to climb. but over all beautiful hike!

Hiked this twice now and it’s amazing. When you get to the top you need to climb the fire tower in order to get the views. The ferry ride over and back is quick. Stop at the golf course clubhouse for a post hike drink and a nice view of Kineo from the deck.

Great but challenging hike. Lots of elevation in under 2 miles to the summit. The fire tower only has a ladder to the top so it’s not for the faint of heart. Continue past the fire tower for a side trail with a nice view and a bench overlooking the mountains.

This was a pretty challenging hike in terms of decent elevation gain in a short distance. We’re pretty fit and had no problem completing it but it definitely took its toll on my old knees. My 8, 9 and 11 year old kids didn’t have much difficulty with it other than a minor emotional outburst from the youngest about his sore legs. The fire tower has a steel ladder up to the top so it’s not for the faint of heart. When you get to the fire tower keep going a little past it on the trail. There is a side trail with an overlook and a bench that overlooks the mountains. Very well maintained trail!

We missed the head-trail sign initially. Little slippery/wet due to recent rain. Good, moderate hike, we did it with our 4 boys, 3 teenagers and a 10yr old. Took about 2 hours total with a few rests along the way. Go just beyond the fire tower to a bench and better views! Would definitely do it again.

This was a nice hike that isn’t too strenuous but gives nice views. HOWEVER, many magazines and even the park itself says that this is the Grand Canyon of Maine. It is not. It is a river walk. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and 1 mile deep. This hike is 8 miles long and 50 feet deep. Please do not expect the Grand Canyon like I did. If you want a nice hike go to Gulf Hagas, but if you want the Grand Canyon go to Arizona... but keep in mind still super fun and pretty :)

LOVED IT!. Agree with others that if you are thinking this is the grand canyon you have been misinformed and will be disappointed, but it is an amazing river hike with multiple waterfalls along the trail, as the river moves through a deep gorge. We crossed the river (which was low and easy to cross this day, but I am sure it can be interesting in the Spring). I had hiking sticks which I found very useful, for the entire hike. There were a few staffs at the trailhead (left by trail management?) that could be borrowed to cross the river today. First leg of the hike is on the AT unitl you hit the rim trail. I would considering this moderate as others have, not too much elevation, but it is an 8-9 mile hike with rocky/heavily rooted terrain - bring pleny of liquids. You can take a few specific cut-offs to shorten the route if you want. Trail is very well marked and easy to follow, aspects can be very slippery when wet (we saw one injured individual on the trail who threw out her shoulder with a fall, and I took quite a digger myself at one point). We went up the Rim Trail which is the recommended route, and returned on the tote road. Nothing much to see on the tote road back. It is a much easier portion of the hike and we cruised back quickly (easily 1/2 the time) to get out before sunset, but it is still a hike in the forest and not a "road." We managed to get through without a significant bug problem (0 bites with deep woods deet), but I consider us very lucky in this regard, as I imagine it can be terrible on a bad day. Other things to obviously be aware of 15$ PER PERSON. The dirt road up through the area from Kathadin Iron Works is fairly rough to the trailhead. Not a problem for SUV's but glad we weren't in a smaller car.

Very technical hike constantly up at sharp angle, requires ropes in places. Do not suggest going alone and go with someone who knows the trail...it is NOT blazed. Also no true trailhead...not easy to find. That said, the views are spectacular and you will be proud of yourself for conquering this thing. Do not take lightly.

My favorite hike of all. Moderate climb to the old fire wardens camp (no longer there) then a steeper climb with ladders and rock climbing to the top. There’s a helicopter pad at the top. Go a bit further to the solar panels and there a a nice ledge to sit on for a spectacular view.

Great trail. Not too bad! Great views of the lake. Fire tower at the top is not as bad as it seems and offers 360 views, don’t skip it. Worth it!
