This is a 3.4 mile hike up to Mount Kineo with an elevation gain of about 1,000 feet and some steep cliffs you’ll walk past on your way up.
This particular loop takes the carriage trail, then up the indian trail to the summit and descends the bridle trail and reconnects with the carriage trail. A longer loop around the perimeter of the island is also possible.
