Such a bueatiful trail. easy. Some harder trails branching off, like bubbles and Jordan cliffs, but it if you want a bueatiful flat walk in Acadia, this is your trail.

Great trail! Good challenge

This was a beautiful trail, but I wouldn’t rate it as easy. Depending on which way you took, the first part of the trail is flat. The second part has you walking over rocks and on a wooden boardwalk. Would not recommend that section on a wet day.

This was such a fun hike to take our time on. The views were beautiful and the trail was well marked!

Beautiful and easy hike! Kid friendly!

Walked up the Divide trail from the parking area to the top of South Bubble, then down the Bubbles Trail to Jordan pond. The descent from the Bubble is a little intimidating, but not overly difficult, and the views are well worth it (I can definitely see that having shorter legs might make it more difficult though).

Nice little walk

My friends and I spent 5 straight days hiking as much of Acadia as possible and this was by far our favorite trail. It's very challenging and at sometimes feels quite dangerous. You have to be pretty deep into a hike to make it to this trail but it's way worth it. We did it going down which was a total thrill. I wish I could have taken better pictures but we didn't feel comfortable taking out any cameras. Picture a crazy winding rock staircase straight down (or up).

Great hike! We enjoyed it and so did our dog!

Rocky trail with lots of uneven ground. Tough on the knees! The peak of St. Sauveur isn’t particularly breathtaking, but once you start walking along Valley Peak it’s pretty much an incredible view the whole stretch. The little detour for the waterfall is totally worth it, you can easily climb next to or to the top of it and sit in the shade to enjoy the view. We cheated and walked back down Man O’ War, which is a flat path (old access road?). All in all a pleasant hike through woods, steady incline, and beautiful views.

Short hike with amazing views. There’s several options to follow for a longer hike. Lots of fun stretches over rock with ocean views.

I love this Trail and my dogs are so happy here. Great views and much serenity. Just a nice easy hike with so much to offer.

This is a great trail, but I disagree about it being suitable for dogs on a leash. It is very rocky and steep in places, really not suitable for dogs on leash. You may fall trying to navigate the dog and yourself. Off leash is better but since this is in the park, that is not an option. Best advice: leave the dog home for this hike.

Flat, easy stroll through the woods and along the rocky shores near Sand Beach.

Light house is at the end of short path. Sunset is nice there but it was swarmed with people and photographers. If you’re peoplephobic this is not the spot to watch the sunset.

Nice little trail along the waters edge. Not very hard or strenuous. A lot of the fun looking parts near the cliffs were closed off for habitat restoration. I can’t complain about that.

I don’t like driving to the summits of mountains for their view. I took this path up and found it to be a pretty technical/difficult hike. Lots of near vertical sheets of rocks you have to navigate up. I went at a slippery time and it seemed like if I slipped I could’ve been seriously injured. I think the challenge was worth it though and would say to just hike carefully. Don’t do this one on wet rainy days. Once you’re done you’ll feel very accomplished.

Good trail with lots of nice views. Mostly a lot of stair climbing which gets somewhat tiring. Would recommend as a nice small jaunt from the nature center.

Wow! Incredible views, a bit difficult in places, but totally worth it!

Very nice level walk with some rocks & roots. Great views of Jordan’s pond and was not crowded on a weekday in early May.

We were there mid day during the week at the beginning of May. Only two other people there. Very good opportunity to get some pictures if you climb out on the rocks.

Very easy but extremely beautiful, please respect the park rules ( no swimming) and stop at the restaurant after for some delicious pop overs, you'll thank me later!

Pretty popular walk. I guess the appeal is walking across on low tide. Doesn't really do much for me. Views from the high point on the island are alright.

I like how the website says that this is the #2 of 133 trails in Acadia, but that it is "lightly trafficked". It is pretty busy. Parking can be tough on the trailhead on the park loop road. I think the views are nice, but I know a lot of people who hate on this trail.

Definitely not 8 miles. When you're not right next to the road, this is a pleasant little stroll. The elevation gain is also off for this hike. I'd suggest parking on Kebo STreet instead of Main street if you wanted to hike this.

Excellent trail. Be amazed when you hit the top of Champlain and begin descending the south ridge and find all the crowds coming from the Beehive area. Good views back towards Bar Harbor and to the east and south once you get high enough.

Good if you have no other options. Can cut over on Murphy Lane to the Precipice trail and avoid some of the parking issues at Precipice trailhead. But the Schooner head path parallels the road and is unremarkable.

SOme nice views and a little rock scrambling. You can access Sand Beach from this side if you don't want to brave the other parking lot. Probably not great when granite is wet..

Parking is tough at this trailhead. Best to get there early in the morning. Is a nice alternative to sunrise on Cadillac.

Mostly just a way from the campground to the cove. Prettty lightly trafficked.
