Another great, short hike. I have hiked it several times with my dog. It is great for dogs who like water and get hot easily - there is a "lake" at the top and my dog loves to swim in it when we get there.

We live within a 30-minute drive of this mountain so I have hiked it several times with my dog. It is a very short, easy hike. I like it because it is very remote - I usually only see 2 or 3 other hikers while I am there. I usually walk with my dog off leash but on voice-control and I don't have to worry about traffic or other hikers. Lots of people bring their small children because they can easily make the climb. There aren't any great views from the top, but still fun!

Abol Trail

Abol is one of my favorite trails to ascend Mt Katahdin. It is one of the shortest (if not the shortest) trail to the top. There is a lot of bouldering and it is a fairly steep climb at the top.

One of the best placing for geocaching with so many to look for. The hike has some nice challenges but well worth the trip.

Katahdin - Knife Edge

Hands down my favorite hike. Challenging with scrambling, some climbing (the Chimney), epic views for the entire trip. One thing we found out the hard way- you have to make reservations to hike this mountain!

East Royce Trail

Hiked from the northern most trail head. It was a beautiful autumn day and quite warm. The trail was fairly well marked. I wanted to make a loop but the trail was not marked well from the top down, so we went back down the same way we took up. Maybe next
time.

Ocean Path Trail

On a spectacular mid-August morning, we strolled along the coastal Ocean Path, taking practically every opportunity to deviate and explore what the shore offered. Thunder Hole was relatively quiet, the rocks all had their pinkish hue, and we encountered several folks rappelling down the Otter Cliff area. This is a great hike and hiking both ways offers vantages you don't see going just one way. Great warmup if you plan to do some additional hikes later in the day. Get there early or late to beat the crowds.

Ladder Trail Loop

Great hike with awesome views. The trailhead is not well marked but if you just go past the Tarn from the north on Hwy 3, look for a wide gravel area on the right. The trailhead is at the tree edge. Talk about step engineering, this is a stairmaster climb that won't disappoint. Only three iron ladders and not as scary as Beehive or Precipice, the Ladder trail gives you a great workout and then hits the Schiff/Dorr Mountain rocky slope to the top. We loved seeing all the people on top of Cadillac while we virtually had Dorr all to ourselves. There are many options to take at the top, e.g. you can continue on the Gorge trail to Cadillac, or you can go back down the Ladder trail, or you can go take the East Face/Schiff trail to the Tarn, OR you can take the South Ridge Trail down to the Canon/Kane trail back to the parking area. Highly recommend this hike.

North Bubble Trail

Good view of Jordan Pound and Jordan Pond House. Bubble rock looks like it should fall off the edge which is fun to see. Rock scramble on south side is a bit more challenging.
