Description : On either side of the trail, in the shadows beneath the thick canopy of mature black spruce, grows a rich moss carpet. Look for white indian pipe; an unusual flowering plant that needs very little light to grow.

From the lookout platform atop Malady Head there is an incredible view of Southwest Arm and the Eastport Peninsula.

Wildlife/Plant Life : Wet in spots, beautiful views, steep climb, mosses, lichens, Indian pipe plant

Access: To the left of Site 62 in the campground

Condition: Boardwalk and handrails help make this hike more pleasurable. The end of the trail has a steep grade so caution is advised. Due to several wet spots waterproof footwear is recommended.
