The trail was a bit steep at times, but the 1.25 miles was not enough for experienced hikers to feel like they have accomplished anything--left me wanting more.

It's a nice enough, tame trail. But for the avid hiker, your legs are left wanting more. My favorite two hikes in Maine are the Cutler Bold Coast and Great Wass Island.
