Sargent Northwest Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This strenuous loop combines sections of a few trails for a traverse along huge boulders and rock slabs at the bottom of a giant slide and then up the open summit of Sargent, Acadia’s second-highest peak. You’ll also bag less-visited Gilmore Peak, nestled between Sargent and Parkman Mountains.

Deceivingly easy at first, the hike begins relatively flat.
The Giant Slide Trail starts by winding through a mossy forest and along some extensive trail work to protect the terrain—dozens of sections of log bridges, each 6 to 7 feet long, known as bog walks. Soon you’ll climb a short series of granite steps to an amazing sea-green-colored, lichen-terraced landscape."

"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."
