hike was great except the parts that run along the road and the crowds of tourists at the top, even at sunset!

wicked fun trail, i recommend being in decent shape

similar to the precipice trail half the time and elevation...still lots of fun

Excellent to take young kids

An amazing job of trail building. The last section up out of the gorge to the summit of Cadillac Mountain is steep and has a few places where you need to use your hands to scramble up through the slabs and boulders.

We hiked up to Bald and then over to Speckled carrying 30 lb bags to stay over night on Speckled. It was very tough carrying the bags and we stopped a lot to break, but the summit of both Mts was breathtaking. On way to Speckled there was two very steep inclines. Moose poop all over on top of Speckled. Our campsite was awesome and faced Abbott Pond. We were protected from wind. Amazing experience. Aug 21, 2017

Awesome! This was very difficult for me, but I am just starting out on my hiking journey. There was a lot of scrambling. Like other reviews, I will say that the pond is *gorgeous* and the view if you continue on to the summit is breathtaking.

trail is a mess from logging, but don't let that deter you. view at the top is worth it!

Loved this hike! It certainly is steep but I'd say it's dog friendly. The view from the top was very beautiful, I bet it looks amazing in the fall with all of the foliage colors. We did this at about 10:30 am on a Sunday in August and only past one other couple. Be aware that some trees have sap on them so if you use them for leverage you might be sticky for the rest of the hike! I'd call this easy to moderate. Moderate side only being because you need some endurance for all the steep hills and rocks and if it's very humid out it doesn't make it any easier.

Fun! Loved this hike, blue trail ((North Peak) fairly rated "moderate." A little steep at the start and again at the top (just enough to make it a fun challenge, not treacherous). Took one hour up. Beautiful summit, not panoramic, but scoot on over for views on each side. We took Twin Brook Trail down (the yellow trail). As of August 21, 2017, this was clearly marked. This is longer (1.5 hours), it's twisty with several ups and downs. Easy to find trail head with parking lot off route 160. Enjoy!

Doesn't allow dogs so we couldn't go in. Just a warning for anyone traveling here for an adventure with a pup!
