A day hike up Mansell Mountain, returning along the shore of Long Pond. From the pumping station follow the Great Pond Trail around the corner of the lake for only a short distance. Watch for the Perpendicular Trail branching off to the left, and follow it. The trail starts climbing immediately and soon crosses a boulder field, ascending the upper part with some remarkable switchbacks constructed entirely of stone. You will see many more beautifully constructed rock steps on this lower section of the trail. As with other hikes in Acadia National Park, this trail displays some fine examples of stonework.
