Razorback Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Climb up a rocky spine to wooded Mansell Mountain and an overlook down to Long Pond. You’ll get views of the Cranberry Isles and the Gulf of Maine on the ascent.

The Razorback Trail, reached 0.1 mile west on the Gilley Trail, begins as a wide-open path carpeted with pine needles and then climbs a series of stone steps. The trail next takes you along the narrow spine up Mansell Mountain, bringing you along cliffs and providing some wonderful open-ridge views. To the left (west) you can see the wooded hulk of Knight’s Nubble and Bernard Mountain; to the south are the Gulf of Maine and the Cranberry Isles."

This trail makes a great alternate descent from the main Mt Mansell summit trail. Fantastic views for most of the trail and a relatively easy hike. When we hiked it was not crowded at all, even in peak season (August).
