I and my friend started this hike at 2 am so that we could reach summit by sunrise. We were so scared because there was no one else on that trail and it was a dark night. It was fun in a way that we walked so fast that we reached an hour before the sunrise. Watching sunrise was worth it though. I found getting down was tougher that climbing actually.

Map is not accurate. Trail has been re-routed

This is a great hike that gives you a taste of some rock scrambling that is typical of Acadia hikes yet it is not to long nor a great elevation gain. Recommend good shoes or hiking boots The views are spectacular. We did this before the park loop road opened up so encountered no people. However, due to its popularity, it may be difficult to social distance as crowds return to Acadia.

Lovely foggy hike. No view today. But also not too hot and no bugs.

Wouldnt consider this a "hike" but the view of the ocean and coastline from the rocks is awesome. great place to spend a little time soaking in the scenery and hear the waves crash!

The most epic hike in Acadia NP for sure! Very memorable. Glad to have checked it off the bucket list back in September 2019

From Echo Lake-4 ladders reach the summit. Dry conditions-otherwise could be slick. I will bring my daughter next trip. She’s young, but capable and confident enough to climb and descend the ladders. Great time-beautiful place!

Is the trial open ?

Excellent hike with family and dog.

The Little Harbor Brook portion of this trail is incredible. The brook is beautiful and the trail is well maintained. This brook is one of the clearest I have ever seen in Maine. We hiked up to where it connects to the Asticou and Jordan Pond Path. We turned left. That is also an incredible path, possibly one of the most well-made I have ever seen. The fine gravel path is wide enough for two people side by side, and there are full granite steps on inclines. We then took the map house trail and the Charles Savage Trail up and over Eliot Mountain. There is a trail from the map house to the Charles Savage trail, but it was very hard to follow and I wouldn’t recommend it. Simply follow the little dirt road in that direction, and eventually you will see the marker for the Eliot Mountain on your left. Overall a great hike.

We hiked up Dorr ladder south trail first and then came down Dorr south ridge and canon brook. My husband struggles with heights and was able to do this hike easily. They weren’t lying when they said 2,000 stone steps in beginning. I have asthma and the beginning was pretty steep, so I did have to stop frequently on that first part but once we got to the ladders it wasn’t bad. Loved the trail coming down. Beautiful hike well worth the effort because the views are magnificent.

Solid easy to moderate hike. There were fun, challenging, rock-scramble sections but they were mercifully short so I had enough fuel the tank to make a somewhat long loop of it. And I'm not even in that great of shape. As usual the views were spectacular. The weather made it a perfect day - sunny, upper-50s, with a stiff breeze (downright windy at the peaks) to keep the bugs down. Made a loop out of Parkman > Sargent > Penobscot > Cedar Swap > down to Lower Hadlock and back to the car.

This was a super hike done with family. Beautiful, beautiful views. So serene. We came down Razor Back and that proved to be a great decision! Cannot wait to hike it again.

Extremely nice hike and trail. Great views at the top especially with the fire tower

Came out during the COVID-19 shutdown knowing that Acadia National Park is closed, but this area would be open (to park a vehicle) and hike along the rocks or take a very easy trail. At first I was only going to hike the rocky coastline, but a wild turkey had me follow him on the trail. He eventually went into the woods, but I kept on walking and saw a mother duck with her ducklings in a shallow pond, some bees pollinating blossoms, plus much more. If I had more time, and if restrooms were open, I probably would have taken the other path towards Precipice or even further. Either way, you will definitely enjoy this trail for an easy day's walk.

Acadia never disappoints. For this hike you’ll go up over 1,000 stairs almost straight up the side of the mountain. There are also 3 ladders (this ascent is in the Ladder Trail). The first ladder is the longest and a bit scary, but I just said some choice words and climbed fast. The other 2 ladders are much easier. Like many of the peaks in Acadia, the top goes on for a long time. Lots of great lookouts and places to hang. On the way down you’ll take the Cannon Brook Trail. That part was a little boring until the pond. (You take a left onto this trail to complete the loop. I’ve read you can also go right, go up, see waterfalls, and check out Cadillac. I plan to return later in the week to check it out. ). The first half of this trail is strenuous but a LOT of fun... even that first ladder!!

Make sure you go at high tide if you want to actually experience the thunder hole. Still a beautiful view, but we missed that.

Beautiful trail. Some spots have beautiful views. Very rocky and there’s some parts you’ll need to climb. It was a nice trail though the markings could be a bit more obvious.

I loved this trail - perfect on an overcast morning. Brings out the pink in the rocks. Very calming and beautiful. Could easily spend ours relaxing on this trail.

Great place to roll the windows down and just take in the beauty that is Acadia National Park. Plenty of places to pull over and take in the views as well.

Very easy trail with plenty of places for photos. It is right next to the road, so it can be loud at times. Lots of people on this trail, but don't let that deter you. Thunder Hole is an amazing spot that truly humbles you to the power of the ocean.
