This little-traveled trail, also known as Pemetic West Cliff Trail, provides an important link from the Jordan Pond area to Pemetic Mountain from the southwest. From the Pond Trail, the Pemetic Southwest Trail heads up the cliffs and rock faces of Pemetic, which can be slippery when wet. Highlights: Little-traveled trail to ridge of Pemetic Mountain from the southwest, providing access to the 1,248-foot summit.

Great trail / ***** / I give it five starts and hiked it [five summits: Pemetic, Penobscot, Sargent, North & South Bubble] in a rain storm with near zero visibility. I highly recommend this trail. It has variations that allow safe passage around open slabs when hiking in a rain storm. If you happen to hike these exposed summits in the rain, going up is safe and easy; beware of coming down. It is quite easy to slip with potentially very serious consequences. I need to go back and do these trails on a nice, clear fall day.
