This is no trick of photography or funny angle. There are two sets of iron ladders built into The Ladders Trail that descends 1270 feet from the peak of Dorr Mountain to sea level at The Tarn (a large pond). The railing gives hikers the impression they should take the descent facing away from the ladder, like a set of stairs. We chose to use it as a ladder and found it easier than some of the granite staircases cut into the mountain.
