“Entry point for the Cabot Trail”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Enter from the counter clockwise point - stop at the Ranger Station to get the map which includes the pullouts and the trails. The ranger can offer up the best hikes suited for you.

“See it!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Lots of great views. We traveled in October and so there was still plenty of color from the fall foliage. If you like to take pictures you'll have lots of angles and views to pick from.
