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.

Amazing views and a great hike! Nice climbing activity at some points and good surprises along the way, such as a small lake.
The beach was a beautiful place to park the car, would definitely recommend to check it out while there.

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

A wonderful hike. Mainly over rocks. We did it together with my family incl. a 20 months old in a carrier. Stopped many times. Made it up in 2 hours and down in about 1.5 hours. The gift shop up top sold hot chocolates, which we loved as it was cold and windy on this October day.

Great Hike! Juice it worth the squeeze!

Took about 2:15 to finish round trip at a fairly brisk pace. Easy all the way up. A little towards the end but nothing strenuous for any normal human. Great views during ridge hike until to get to human parade at the top.

S’ok. Fairly easy all the way up if you have any climbing background. Just a simple scramble at best.

Beautiful trail gradual ascent. Follow the blue blazes

Views are awesome on top. Going up / down from / to Echo Lake Beach provides the experience of climbing some iron ladders:-)

This was a phenomenal experience. The views on this trail are beautiful. Paradise!

I’d definitely do it again! The fire-tower at the summit is unexpected but provides good views.

Nice walk around the pond. We went counterclockwise so first half of the trail was very easy. Second half included walking on some flat rocks and a well-maintained wooden boardwalk. Good for a windy or rainy day when harder hikes may be dangerous.

We parked at Jordan Pond and hiked the east side of the pond, then up to the south bubble. This is a the difficult stretch! There were rock scrambles where you have to use your hands. Really fun though! I would not want to do it going down though... We also added the north bubble summit then took the bubbles divide back down to Jordan pond to create a loop!
Amazing views, fun rock scrambles, would definitely recommend doing it as a loop!

Amazing view! especially during autumn when the foliage is out and the crowds are down. Definitely start at the beehive. We met some hikers on the trail who started at Gorham and were disappointed.

Great trail for intermediate/advanced hikers. Not suitable for young kids as there are parts of the descent that require longer arms and legs to reach the footholds. The ascent is quick but steep with lots of nicely kept stone steps. Descent was longer but had the breathtaking views around every corner. Check out the waterfall overlook at the end of the Acadia trail. Man-o-war trail on the way back was a dirt road. Whole loop took us (21, F) just under two hours. Would definitely recommend as a warm up to grasp whether someone would be comfortable with some of the harder, more well known loops like beehive or precipice.

Great views!

great short walk good views.

Fairly quick trail that lets you see a variety of ocean, beach, rocks, forests and vistas. Nothing too difficult. We enjoyed going down to the oceans edge on the rocky side and just watching the waves crash on the shore.

This was a great hike. We took the loop counter clockwise and got all the difficult section of the trail out of the way first. The last part of the trail is very flat and easy and includes thunder hole (which you want to visit 2 hours before high tide). I am glad we had the flat section last at dusk. For my novice experience as a hiker, I would not want to be on the mountain part after dark. Beautiful views of the ocean and fall leaves.

A little scary but super fun! Beautiful colors in October

Super fun and quick trail. About 20 minutes to the top, all uphill with a few rock scrambles. Bring a lunch and have a picnic at the top, great spot for that.

Started our hike at 5.15am and got to the top by 6.30am to watch the sunrise. It doesn’t get light out till after 6am so make sure to bring a headlamp. The hike was exciting! All uphill and made it more adventurous in the dark. Not challenging but definitely long and can be tiring at some points. The view is absolutely amazing and sunrise is not to be missed.

We just did the short loop from the Beech Cliffs parking lot and it was super easy and short, with a gorgeous view of Echo Lake and beyond.

Make sure you do the whole loop, not just the shortest (steepest) climb to the tower or you'll miss the amazing views on the .7 section.

I love how fast you get amazing views on this hike! Some scary parts for sure but they just add to the fun!

Steep in the beginning but not too difficult. An amazing place to watch the sunset without the crowds of Cadillac Mountain! Loved getting to climb up a ways on the fire tower too.

Really beautiful pond to walk around, especially in fall. I think it could be classified as easy - it’s really very flat all the way. Loved the long section of beautiful wooden boardwalk! We also did South Bubble along the loop, would recommend.
