We took the South Ridge Trail up, which is easier than hiking up the North Ridge. The hike is steep in sections but not that strenuous overall. As you approach the top everything just opens up and you are bathed in fantastic views. Markings along the trail are easy to follow and the views of Jordan Pond and all around are wonderful.

My family and I have been coming to Acadia for over ten years now and we all agreed that Pemetic Mtn from the Bubbles parking lot is our favorite trail in the park. The trail is consistently filled with interesting aspects including a ladder trail through a ravine and a wooden railing on a ridge in the forest. Also, the views from the summit are some of the most spectacular I've seen with Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond just below. I highly recommend this hike to any experienced hikers who are staying in the area!
