the beehive portion of the trail was an awesome adventure. ******""Definitely get there by/before 8 to avoid crowds;********* you can park at sand beach. The latter portion of the trail was well-marked and much easier. The last bit was on, or next to the road so it wasn't as exciting from a challenge standpoint but offered some beautiful views and options to climb out onto the cliffs along the coastline. If you're going to include the beehive loop to your hike, counterclockwise is the way to go to avoid hindering other hikers. only 4 stars for this loop for the part on the road everything else was 5/5

This was a very exciting hike with unbeatable views! A great trail for adventurers seeking a little adrenaline rush for the second half up to the summit. Absolutely the best hike we could have picked for our very limited time in Acadia. Loved it!! Not a ton of people today.

Very busy trail. Be prepared to wait in an amusement park style line, while on the trail.

Simply stunning. I highly recommend extending your time on Beehive to include Gorham Mountain, which has some of the least talked about but best views . Beehive was exhilarating! I have a mild fear of nights and a few points I had to calm my nerves, but totally worth it. I feel great having stepped outside my comfort zone.

Enjoyed this trail. Went up Beehive, which was still fairly crowded then did The Bowl, up to Gotham mountain, down the other side of Gotham mountain and the Cadillac cliff trail and walked back along the Ocean Path. Ended up being just under 4 miles. The Cadillac cliff trail was really cool.

Good trail. Got to the parking lot at 7am with a good amount of spaces. Pretty foggy all of the hike but still a cool hike. Rungs can be really slippery with mists.

HikingGreat!

This was one of my favorite trails during my trip to Acadia. Beehive could be challenging for some but the views at the top are very rewarding. For a Monday morning, the trail wasn’t too busy.

HikingGreat!

This trail provides a nice mix of everything: steep climbs, mountain outlooks, gentle forest walks... and is actually vastly improved if you don’t return from Gorham mountain the way you came, but instead continue down the south side, to the parking lot on park loop road and then walk back along the ocean loop trail to Sand Beach for a perfect end to the hike with a dip in the ocean. This trail is described as ‘lightly trafficked’ but that is not the case - the Beehive gets extremely congested on the way up (akin to Angel’s Landing in Zion) so it’s best to start early.

Came on a Saturday at 715am. Parked close to trailhead to my surprise. Second car there. Shared trail with 10 others along the way. Thrilling climb. Precipice got my adrenaline going, this was much easier but still not for the faint of heart

This loop was challenging, fun, and breathtaking! We started with the Beehive Trail when we had the most energy, then continued to Gorham Mountain which also had beautiful scenic points and was less trafficked. We finished the loop with the Ocean Trail for a more relaxing and very scenic view of the coastline.
