"The trail takes some tricky turns across creek beds and along granite faces, so watch for small cairns and blue blazes that mark the way. Shortly after the trail goes by a cascade, Long Pond comes into view through the trees. When the trail finally reaches the shore at 4.5 miles from the town landing, be sure to savor the views. The path follows the pond for less than 100 yards before it heads steeply back up the ridge via switchbacks. The trail takes you over a deep crevice on a small wooden bridge and continues its upward course, steeply and then more gently. Because the trailhead is about a 3-mile walk on the island loop road from either the town landing or Duck Harbor Landing, Long Pond Trail is the most difficult to reach on Isle au Haut. Highlights: Views of mile-long freshwater pond; wooded Bowditch Mountain; uncrowded."
