Sargent East Cliffs Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Accessed from the Deer Brook Trail, this is a recently reopened route up Sargent Mountain, at 1,373 feet the park’s second-highest peak.

The approximately 90-year-old trail, tastefully refurbished with some unique historic-style cairns, offers jaw- dropping views of Cadillac Mountain rising above North and South Bubbles, Conners Nubble, and Eagle Lake."

"Acadia National Park is dissected by a series of parallel ridgelines. Carved by receding glaciers and stripped by the infamous 1947 fire, these polished-granite mountains showcase exquisite seacoast scenery. Enshrouded with ocean breezes that carry the fresh scent of prolific pine needles, each of these ridges has something unique to offer; however, the finest, most rewarding trek scales the barren summits of Sargent and Penobscot Mountains."

We connected this to the Bald and Parkman Mountain trails to make one long extended hike. The views of Somes Sound are just stunning, and on a clear day you can see miles out in every direction. Very beautiful, would definitely recommend. Also would recommend the detour to a small pond that lies between Sargeant and Penobscot. The perfect place to soak your feet or have a swim on a sweltering hiking day!
