    My wife and I decided to catch sunrise on top of Cadillac Mountain (supposedly one of the first points in the continental US to see the sun rise).

    Parked at the trailhead at 03:30, started hiking around 03:40. Trail was somewhat rocky in places, but very well marked (blue blazes + cairns), so even in the dark it wasn't difficult to find our way with headlamps. It also started getting light pretty quickly, so by about 04:45 we didn't need headlamps any more. There were at least four or five other groups hiking up the trail as well, and a lot more who just drove up to the summit.

    Made the top just in time for sunrise (5:17), so the climb took about an hour and a half. However, we were also climbing with weighted packs (training), so this should go significantly quicker for others. View from the top was absolutely gorgeous and totally worth it!

    Highly recommend doing this sunrise hike - just make sure you have headlamps, good boots, and water.
