I’d planned to hike Giant Slide Trail & Grandgent to Sargent Mountain based on this list of best hikes in Acadia National Park.
Without hiking guidebook or map, Acadia trails can be confusing.
There are many, many ways to get to the top of Sargent. (also spelled Sargeant)
My particular route was pretty.
By luck, I happened upon a Ranger who recommended Sargent Mountain via Sargent Ridge.
Soon after, I zigged instead of zagged.
And was off on another trail instead.
