Beautiful views of Jordan Pond and the ocean. One of my favorite hikes at Acadia.
Great trail / **** / I would give it five starts but I hiked it [five summits: Pemetic, Penobscot, Sargent, North & South Bubble] in a rain storm with near zero visibility. The hiking between the two summits is very reminiscent of hiking above 10000' in the western states. The Penobscot Mountain Trail is now [August 2008] called Spring Trail, the original name. 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.
