The relative quietness of Mount Desert Island’s second highest summit is a wonderful alternative to the crowds typically encountered atop Cadillac Mountain. With no buildings, radio towers, or automobile traffic, the most significant Sargent Mountain question to ask is which hiking trails to choose for the day’s adventure. This suggested route from the west is a very scenic option that combines numerous barren summits, a long enjoyable ridge walk, a bubbling mountain stream, a quaint waterfall, and an assortment of interesting geological features.

A great hike to the top. Some areas were more strenous then others which made you feel good when you summited. Beautiful view from atop nice spot to relax and take a breathe before heading down.
