Pemetic Mountain North Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is the longest way up Pemetic, first meandering over the partly wooded 698-foot Triad summit before bringing you up steep cliffs and along the ridge to the fourth-highest peak in Acadia. This hike has one of the more out-of-the-way trailheads, making it a route less traveled.From the trailhead at the carriage road, climb gradually 0.4 mile to the summit of the Triad, with its limited views south to most of the Cranberry Isles and better views north to Pemetic Mountain. Smack in the middle of Pemetic and Day Mountains, the Triad can be a peaceful perch, even on a summer weekend, as we discovered on a recent trip. A plaque set in a rock just below the peak carries the name of one of the old memorial paths that used to crisscross this area, the Van Santvoord Trail."
