This trail was every bit of the Maine experience when it comes to waves and rocky shoreline and pine trees etc. If you come over on the Monhegan ferry from Boothbay Harbor for the short day, it is probably not possible to make the full island Cliff Trail in time to get back to the boat. The trail is slow going in many places, steep up and down especially on the eastern side. Spectacular views along the cliffs! We went directly to the lighthouse from the boat landing, then cut across the middle on Trail 7 to connect directly to Trail 1. You can get a marked trail map right after the boat docks. After reaching the shoreline we then looped counterclockwise up and along the cliffs, stopping every few minutes to admire the next great view. To save time and leave room for a stop at the Monhegan Brewery we cut back down Trail 15 towards mid-island. I think it would be better to plan a 2-3 day trip to fully explore all of the trails here, and try all of the great beers at the brewery!

nice easy quick trail to get to and from lobster cover and burnt head without going all the way back to the village.

Cathedral Trail by itself is an easy walk, especially well-suited for families with smaller children. A truly beautiful trail, well worth the visit. Continuing beyond Cathedral Trail becomes more challenging. Kindly resist the urge to build your own "fairy house" on this trail. An excellent place for this fun activity is at Midcoast Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, where classes are offered in a more appropriate setting.
