Chauncey Peak-Giuffrida Park is a hidden gem. Just the right length with good hight and features to make you return again. Also an entry point for Lamentation Mountain.

Very Nice Views!!!

This was a great place to start for our first trip to Acadia. We came off season, so there were no crowds. Walking instead of driving the route allowed for many photo ops and for us to enjoy every bit of the scenery. However, I would not do this trail again on another trip back to Acadia.

Did a modified 4 mile loop of this park. One of my favorites in the region. Definitely worth checking out. Very rocky and trails go along large cliffs with beautiful vistas.

Great for kids! Brought the dog too on a leash. Can’t wait to come back this summer to swim.

Lots of fun if you don’t mind climbing some steep sections with the help of iron rungs, and a couple of precarious sections along a cliff face. Great views all around.

So beautiful!! A must-see when in North Conway. Very easy to find and hike to.

Not a lot of effort for a big reward of a hike. Great waterfall and flume views. Good amount of hard packed snow on the trail. Cramp ons definitely helped but saw other hikers wearing sneakers. Didn’t pass too many people but I’m sure it’s crawling with people in the warmer months.

A fairly challenging climb, I thought it was more difficult than The Beehive. Lots of short vertical climbs between horizontal ledges. Once you get to the top, the view is awesome, and there are a couple ledges you can have your picture taken sitting on that makes it look like you're dangling your legs over the edge.

Less of a hike and more of a climb. Lots of iron rungs with short horizontal ledges between. Lots of fun, but not one to do if you have a fear of heights.

the hike up was crazy, I can't say I've seen anything like it. a few moments had me pause and realize the vertical drop off the trail might be deadly but all the more excitement. the view at the top can not be beat! also the hike back is a lot easier.

Such a fun trail! Despite the short mileage, the “hard” rating is fair, as this hike is truly “nearly vertical.” Would not recommend this one on a wet or windy day. With that being said, the views are incredible, and the hike is awesome. Just did this one yesterday (4/3/18) and there was no snow or ice on the climb up, just a little snow in the woods on the way back down. Highly recommend!

Went with a large group that included kids age 6-16 and Grandparents age 71 & 76... so this hike can be done by all ages, hiking poles came in handy for the grandparents when we got to some areas of the trail, just used for balance more than anything. We had fog the day we went, so we couldn't even see across the lake the whole time we were there. We ended up going back another day just to be able to see the lake without the fog.

We did this hike with our 6 year old last October and loved it! Beautiful views and not too difficult for him. The hike back down has some fairly large rocks so I would definitely recommend hiking shoes!

The hike to Chauncey Peak is short but very steep, the views on top are great.

I have lived about half hour from the flume since 1983. I have only missed a handful of summers when I did not do the trail. It was not until last winter that I realized it could be hiked in the winter.
I finally had the opportunity to take advantage. Trails were great and scenery spectacular.

stunning waterfalls and nice easy walk. beautiful in winter and summer.

Very easy relaxing trail. It's pretty all the way around. Loved it.

Super easy trail, probably perfect for trail running. Amazing views. Doable for any skill level.

Great trail with fantastic views. We did this one in the winter, and it was a lot of fun. Our pup loved it, too. We didn’t use spikes at all. Enjoy!

If you are looking for impressive views or good exercise, Acadia has dozens of hikes that are better. If you have limited mobility and do not mind being surrounded by huge crowds, the walk is enjoyable, but to be clear, you can get the same views from so many other hikes in this gorgeous park.

One of my favorite hikes in Acadia. If hiking in the busy summer season I encourage you to go early in the day to avoid the crowds. If you are afraid of heights your going to want to take your time and not feel rushed. The views of sand beach are spectacular.

Very easy, short walk to and from. Make sure you pay yo park or you will be towed.

Best hike in CT that i've been on so far. just be careful with the doggos when you get to the top.

Amazing views and worth it. Metal bars as holds in the steeper traverses and a well marked path guiding you to the summit are very helpful.

Short, easy hike, fairly popular, a conveniently located beautiful waterfall. Worth a stop.

Went hiking here yesterday and it was beautiful with the snow and ice! Absolutely a must do in the winter. I will never want to come back here in open season again. I have been here in the summer and it was so crowded I was getting annoyed....winter is empty and FREE and beautiful!

Fun hike - includes a lot of steep climbs using metal bars fixed in the rocks. About 30 minutes each way

I highly recommend doing this trail it has amazing views and is by far worth it.

Went on this trail a few years ago.
Had a great time and can't wait to do it again :)
