Great trail. Have not seen many trails like this in New England area. Fun climbing the rungs and there are a couple of hairy spots where there are no rails. Really a worthwhile experience.
Really fun! Not too long (no more than 2 hours to summit). Great views from top. Loved the man-made ladder features. I felt like a mountain goat living on a cliff! Advice to others, though: Don't descend the precipice trail, only go up it, then walk down on one of the ridge trails.
This is a must hike. Don't leave mt desert island with out doing this one not for over 50 years of age
Best trail in Acadia. Go on a dry day and be prepared to climb to the top. Afraid of heights don't try it not much room to turn around.
I loved this hiking/climbing trail, one of my favorite climbs ever. However, this trail can be traumatic to those afraid of heights especially on a clear, fogless day. I would only recommend this trail to those fearless of heights and would not recommend this trail to those with small children. Otherwise, get ready for an adrenaline rush.
