Comments: This was a great hike... hiking in Acadia National Park is such a treat. Spring trail is a little steep going up until you hit the ridge then it’s a pretty easy hike up Penobscot mtn trail... views looking back are amazing.... little windy at summit of Penobscot.... only one at summit but expected when it’s only 7:00am lol. Hike down to Sargent mtn pond is easy.... what a beautiful little pond at 1000 ft elevation. Sargent south ridge trail was pretty easy and scenic. Very windy at summit so didn’t stay long. Descending the first half of east cliff trail wasn’t that bad but then the second drops significantly in elevation. Eroding in places made it a little tricky but doable. Once you hit the deer brook trail it’s a enjoyable descent to Jordan pond path..... pretty cool long board walk on Jordan pond path and looking I could see and hear peregrine falcon flying around Jordan cliffs... very cool. Jordan cliffs trail is closed to nesting. Saw many people on Jordan pond path back to the car for a 6.2 mile loop hike .... great day ✌🏻
