Bowditch Trail winds entirely through Isle au Haut’s interior. A useful connector to other trails, the lack of any expansive views relegates this pathway to ‘pleasant’ status, but by no means spectacular. You plod through deep woods the entire way and there are several stretches which are a bit muddy.

The trail gets its name by leading to the summit of Bowditch Mountain, but the peak is shrouded in trees, denying any panoramas. Don’t let me dis the trail too much, though. The rich collection of trees you pass are the premium Maine blend of evergreen and deciduous, leading me to conclude this walk would be absolutely brilliant in the fall! Passing pretty fields of ferns and patches carpeted by moss lend a diverse mix to the scenery you stroll by.
