A great hike with fantastic views and a fun climb. Just make sure you wear appropriate shoes and follow the instructions at the trail-head and do the hike in a counterclockwise direction, otherwise you end up blocking sections of the trail for people that are going up.
I would stay away if you're afraid of heights but, otherwise, this is a must-do in Acadia!

This trail is mostly a stroll through the woods but there is a leg that follows the edge of the lake and has nice views. The trail isn’t marked very well and it’s easy to venture off the trail but be careful because there are a couple of boggy areas that will trap you in the muck and make the rest of your hike cold if you get your feet wet.

Great trail with amazing views like others have said, however I'd note that it's best to take the trail up from the Loop Route, then up to Beehive Summit. With the ledges and iron rungs, It could be challenging to descend the eastern face from the summit

tougher than moderate in my book. was very wet with leaves made it more challenging.

Beautiful hike. Great views in the way up. the summit was surrounded by tree unfortunantly. But very worth the hike for all the views!

Amazing panoramic views of the bay.

Incredible hike with and incredible views. Towards the top you have to hold on to rails that have been put in the rocks. I don't recommend this trail for people who are afraid of heights

Incredible views. Nice cardio getting to the top. Had to use a few metal rungs here and there.

amazing trail..

My favorite. Lots of great scrambles. Incredible views the whole way up.

This hike will get your heart racing...but it is worth the amazing views and the pride you have for yourself for completing it! Must do this if visiting Acadia!

Some reviews make this sound way scarier than it is. I also get queasy with heights. Yes you need to watch your footing and climb some rungs but it is a fun, short trail. We went as the sun began to rise, it was totally empty (week of Oct 14), took us about half hr to get to the top and we had time to settle before the sun peaked out above the ocean. Definitely recommend this over the crowds on Cadillac Mountain (which we also did) for a sunrise!!!

Great hike! Short, sweet, easy and great views. Tried to loop over to Maiden's Cliff and that was hard to find, but gorgeous hiking all through the park.

This was such a fun hike. We took about an hour to reach the summit but this was only because we stopped to take a lot of amazing pics. The colors during autumn made it so much better. Definitely worth it.

Nice and short, not too strenuous. We hit the summit in a half hour. Several of great photo opps with the fall colors

This was the first physical activity I had done in 6 months, upon walking..I was exhausted and felt like I was going to pass out, it is not an easy trail. But it was well worth it! Even after sunset and close to dark it was so stunning.
There are roots and small rocks scattered around, so it’s a good idea to bring sneakers with grippy soles or hiking boots. You definitely have to watch your step.

This was a phenomenal experience. The views on this trail are beautiful. Paradise!

A little scary but super fun! Beautiful colors in October

I love how fast you get amazing views on this hike! Some scary parts for sure but they just add to the fun!

Beautiful, adrenaline pumping climb.

Went during the summer it was super crowded but still tons of fun. Just don’t look down.

This is strenuous, and if you’re afraid of heights be full warned that there are points of cliff exposure! But it is so worth it for the views! We hiked this immediately after watching the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, and the trail was very quiet and not many people were on it! You should walk the beach when you’re done! Beautiful views and so worth it!!

Good hike. Many trails but some are not marked very well.

Great little hike

Perfectly marked. Do not climb if you are afraid of heights. I have never heard such gasps of awe of the scenery from my wife. Absolutely perfect (hard) hike.

We did this trail right after Precipice and found it actually fairly easy in comparison. There’s a mix of rock scramble and a short iron rung climb but you get to the top if 30 minutes (maybe less, it was raining for us). The views here are absolutely incredible. If you do this hike during peak foliage I think you get the best views. If you go down the Bowl Trail there’s a fun little pond which people go for a dip in the summer.

Amazing views and a great climb.

You definitely need to start this trail with the iron rungs first. Going up them was intimidating (there was definitely a point of turning around not feeling like an option), but I think going down them would have been terrifying. Not a trail for kids or seniors with questionable balance. Amazing views!!! Except for on the top, we staid surprisingly out of the cold fall wind.

Beautiful views at the top. It was scary at parts but almost all tough spots had a rung to hold. Experienced hikers only- is my suggestion for this hike.
