Ascent Trip Report

This trail was one of those special once in a lifetime trails like a mini Knife Edge trail but with plenty of places to hold on and help you climb up. The first ladder seemed to be the hardest for me possibly because I have such short legs! Exhilarating at times walking along cliff edges overlooking the highway and the ocean. The trip back down was a scenic walk down ledges overlooking Bar Harbor.
