Around The Mountain Loop Trail

Around The Mountain Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This ride has it all: three waterfalls, mountain and ocean views, and seven major bridge crossings. It is not clear which mountain the person who named this loop had in mind, for it actually loops around six: Penobscot Mountain, Cedar Swamp Mountain, Bald Peak, Parkman Mountain, Gilmore Peak, and Sargent Mountain. It begins and ends next to the deep blue waters of picturesque Jordan Pond.

For 12.0 miles, it rises and falls through almost every forest type in the park, passes steep cliffs and waterfalls, and climbs to dramatic views of the areas surrounding Acadia National Park. It is long by carriage-road standards and gains more elevation (1,000 feet) than any other loop in the park. Nevertheless, strong riders can still complete it in less than half a day. However, it is easy to spend the entire day studying details of nature and soaking in the long distance views."
