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

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..

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!!!

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 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!!

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.

Loved it! Some of the most breathing views. You definitely should not be afraid of clinging and heights.

Incredible hike and views. I completely agree with some of the other reviews - I did not find the climb physically difficult, but if you have a fear of heights or areas with limited handholds and footholds this would be a difficult one. One of my favorite hikes in New England.

fun little trail great to combine with gorham and ocean path

Short and not difficult as long as you can climb rungs and find your own footholds at times. I never felt in danger but my husband was nervous as he has a fear of heights.

Steep trail with iron rungs. Exposure, great views.

Lots of fun to hike! Went later in the day and was not too crowded

Very nice trail, heavily traveled with many people along the way. Despite the amount of people the trail was very clean and fun to hike!

Gorgeous hike!! Full disclosure, I am a chicken when it comes to heights but this was worth it. I was not a fan of the 2 bridges but the view at the top is stunning!

This trail is amazing! I am generally pretty horrible with heights and I was worried whether I would be able to complete this hike. It was a blast. The climb is short and sweet and the views are panoramic. The trail is plenty wide and the metal rungs are sturdy and well placed. I highly recommend this trail for anyone trying to get over their height aversion!

As advertised. Breathtaking views. Slippery when wet.
