Sargent Mountain South Ridge 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."
