This hike was a perfect one for us. It was a moderate trail in my frame of reference but I believe it is an "easy" trail for Acadia. There was one place were the climbing was a little nerve racking for someone who is afraid of edges and heights, but it was short and there were kids in flip flops doing it so.... I personally wouldn't take small children but there were kids on the trail. Tennis shoes are a must and a camera. I was very upset when I got to several places with amazing views without my camera. Cell phones just don't do it justice. There is also a spot on the trail where you can see the Beehive trail across in the distance. Its worth seeing the difficult trail and the tiny "ants" that are actually climbing it!
