Comments: Beautiful Saturday morning loop hike over these 360 view summits. Jordan cliff trail was a little wet early morning but very doable… not a trail to do if your scared of heights, puts you on the edge multiple times. Super fun trail and as I was standing there admiring the view a peregrine falcon flew right by me at my level… a moment I’ll never forget. East cliffs trail is really steep too but once it puts you above tree line it’s fairly easy to the top. Views were phenomenal on Sargent mtn. Such a beautiful day, visited Sargent mtn pond at 1100 ft elevation. What a gem… then an easy hike up to Penobscot mtn. Around 7 people at the summit but still early. Penobscot mtn trail gives you panoramic views on the way down. So many sailboats & boats out on the ocean. Spring trail coming off of Penobscot mtn trail is very steep going down to the carriage road, from there it’s really a easy out to Jordan pond then the parking lot. Back before noon to beat the crowds. Memorable hike.
