Very fun trail with great views! 2nd climb is difficult especially after just finishing Acadia mountain.
Great hike. Excellent views. Some spots can be steep. It is listed as a hard trail and they are right. It is a workout but if you take your time it is worth it for the excellent views at the top.
Beautiful views of Somes Sound that are worth the effort. Complete the hike with our children, ages 8 and 11. It left us in awe and tired.
I too added the Valley Peak making it 5.3 miles. Beautiful views, decent work out (not too long either)...and blueberries!!! ;)
Great. Added valley peak. But March - August part of the park here is closed for falcon breeding season.
Great trails with fantastic views of the sound, even with a little bit of fog!
tricky and we'll worth the effort!
One of my absolute favorite hiking loops!
This was the best and most challenging 2 hour hike I have ever been on. Amazing views.
I just did the Acadia mountain loop, but killer views for sure
We started a loop from the St Saveur parking area, past the summit, then across and over to Acadia mountain (or as I like to call it, the mountain of false summits). The views of Somes Sound are spectacular and the terrain is varied and interesting. There are many steep rocky sections, and we were surprised to see some young children on the trails-in sandals no less. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with strong soles, take plenty of water, and get ready for invigorating up and down hiking.
Nice hike. Some roots along the way. Shady in spots which helps on a sunny day. Well marked. Expected better views from the top.
This hike took us 3hrs to complete. We tackled St. Sauveur first, a great choice to get the blood moving and open the lungs. When we approached Acadia Mountain is felt like we were never going to reach the summit. Vertical climbs one after the other, definitely a challenge. Some areas are moist and buggy while others a sunny and hot with little or no breeze. As always reaching the top is the reward. If your looking for a challenging hike, give this one a try.
We did Acadia Mountain out and back today. This trail is just incredible in the fall. Not a difficult trail and meticulously groomed. The views from the summit are breathtaking. We hiked so many trails in Acadia and all of them are amazing, but Acadia Mountain is a 'must do' if you are visiting the park. It is only 2 miles out and back, so it is good for a nice afternoon hike.
