I have never done the hike but have done the evening "carriage ride". Its not a carriage its a farm wagon. Nice ride with some history thrown in, a nice way to cap off the day.

We hiked this mountain from the stables and hiked to the far side first. There are awesome views from the far side that are far superior to the peak. One word of caution the carriage roads are miserable.

We rented bikes in Bar Harbor for our first day in the park. Since we are here after school has started, and mid-week we pretty much had the carriage roads to ourselves.

Took the carriage road to the top via our mountain bikes we rented in Acadia. Saw on the carriage road map this was one of the destinations. It is 500 feet in elevation change and there are several good views as you asend but nothing really to see once you get to the top.
