Acadia National Park attracts more than two million visitors each year. With many different facilities and attractions in the park, there is something to interest everyone. Hiking, and Mountain Biking are among the most popular activities in Acadia National Park. There are freshwater, estuary, forest, and intertidal habitats.

Great hike. Not super hard but interesting enough with great and I mean GREAT views. Also much quieter then the "popular" hikes in Acadia.

Phenomenal, classic Maine scenery in a nutshell. Highly recommend!

Beautiful views

Good stroller hike if you have a child. Decent hike with some small inclines, but not many Kodak moments until you hit the waterfall and bridges. Overall, we enjoyed it.

Too short, so we did it twice.

Did this one today with my 10 month old daughter in a carrier on my back. She loved it. Even though it's a quick .4, still wear good shoes for traction as its rocky in some areas and you could easily trip.

I enjoyed it. Pretty easy and not very technical. You're close to the road towards the end and not very well marked. I spent 20 mins walking around bushes until I finally found a trail marker. The summit has amazing views.

Ask visitor center about hike to get adequate description on where to park because the one way Park Loop Rd could mess you up. Worth the hike if you want to work for the fabulous view. You don't even have to go to the top to see the openings that overlook Bar Harbor. We went up on a weekday in June and the fog was out of this world. Felt like I was in a hurricane, so check that too because you won't see a thing through the fog.

Hard moderate due to the rock slide has left the walk up a little unmarked at times and ladders that made me nervous even though they were mega sturdy. The view is great and make your way down the Canada cliffs side for an easy decent with no ladders. This hike is for you if you want to avoid the crowds and join the quiet side. Great open flat top area for a picnic or yoga lovers to overlook the water.
