There are a couple ways to the top, moderate or difficult. There is also a scenic easy trail along Long Lake. This lake is very beautiful.

I have hiked all the trails in Acadia over the years. This one is on the quiet side of the island. Not a busy trail but if you want alone hiking, this is the trail for you.

It offers stunning panoramic views, challenging and varied terrains, idyllic pond walks and no crowd. Loved it.

We opted for the trail along the pond and then up to the summit. We were rewarded with a beautiful view of the distant bays and mountains. Plenty of wild blueberry bushes along the way.

A good walk, some steep parts on the Razorback Trail but the group aged 8 to 75 managed it well, ~ 2 miles in a couple hours. This is a little out of the way of the major tourist area of Acadia and so parking...More

Although we didn't finish the full path around the mountain we did love the views, the quiet, and cool shaded path. The breeze was very strong on our trip so layers were good to have on. There were many places to sit on rocks and...More

You will appreciate this hike even if you are not an avid hiker. There are about 4 trails up Mansell and the views from the top make it well worth the effort.

Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Stretch your legs out on a beautiful, well marked trail. Gotta love Maine!
