Favorite hike in Acadia!’

Simply Beautiful.

Made it back to the South Ridge early January for a sunrise visit to Cadillac -- easily continues to be one of the most beautiful, and one of my favorite, trails of all time. Based more-so on length than elevation gain (although there is still a fair amount!), I agree with the difficulty rating of hard. Do not attempt this trail in the winter unless you have proper winter and ice gear -- much of the the trail was completely coated over in ice and snow, and a lot of caution is necessary, particularly on the way down. It was also very cold and on the ridge, you are exposed to the elements. If you are prepared, though, then you're sure to have an incredible experience with some of Maine's finest scenery.

If a sunrise hike is in your plans for any season, be sure to have a headlamp or good flashlight. There are cairns and blazes along the ridge, but depending on the conditions you're in, they may be tough to see (if clear though, then easy to follow for the most part). Take your time and don't go off trail.

Great hike/climb, definitely one of the harder trails in Acadia.

Beautiful scenery and nice stop in Acadia Park.

Easy hike with great views around the pond. Boardwalk was a little slick, so extra traction may be required in icy spots.

Absolute must hike if you are planning a trip to Acadia. If you can climb a ladder or steep staircase you MUST do the beehive.

If you want to know what you're in for take quick look at my virtual hike on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=Lb-KmUeIEJg

amazing

Love this trail! It’s like a jungle gym on steroids. Sadly, the day we did it was foggy so not much view, but we still loved it.

There were a few parts that were fun, maybe because of the wee ones with us. All very doable, it’s was foggy and slick when we hiked it and all made it up no problems with the rungs.
Beautiful views and pictures. Found a great painted rock ‘Kilroy was here’ left by a group from PA who paint rocks and leave them as souvenirs

great hike with some cool views

I started at Jordan pond and ascended up south bubble to north bubble to Conor’s nubble and then started back via eagle lake trail and Jordan pond carry back to Jordan pond for a loop. Going up south bubble is pretty much straight up and for someone not use to hiking can be pretty challenging but after that summit the others are fairly easy. Great views of Jordan pond and eagle lake. I thought eagle lake trail would be more like Jordan pond trail but I was wrong. Definitely more rugged. But overall great hike

Cadillac is a favorite spot of mine and I finally climbed it this year. I chose south ridge up and back to my parking spot. I wouldn’t say it’s a very difficult hike, a lot of the trail is above the tree line to exposed rocked and for the most part a small incline the whole way up. But it is long. Pack water and snacks, make a day of it and enjoy some time at the top before descending and if it’s sunny wear a hat or sunscreen! Cadillac mountain is a must see in acadia but hiking up it definitely a must do!

Love this trail. The other reviews can be discouraging, as someone who doesn’t particularly love heights i can handle this trail no problem. You do climb right along the edge and there is pretty much nothing stopping you from falling, but the edge is pretty wide. Just takes your time and watch your footing. The iron rungs may be difficult for some more than others and there are quite a few on the way up. But the views are totally worth it!

Probably one of my favorite hikes in all of acadia. Acadia trail was surprisingly short to the summit, not a very high elevation, but stunning views nonetheless. Then you go down just to come back up Sauveur. Now the summit of sauveur is nothing special...it has trees and there is no real view from the top. But the views on the way up are my favorite, great views of a harbor and fishing boats. Both trails together make for a pretty decent day hike

Love this trail! Not a very long hike but you get some really great views of sand beach and the beehive across the way.

Overall a pretty decent hike. I started from the bubbles parking lot up the northwest trail based on recommendations and came down the south ridge and followed Jordan pond back to the parking area to make a loop. It is a challenging climb up especially if it has recently rained...caution it will be slippery. Make sure to keep an eye out for the markers as the trail direction changes without some notice on the way up. On the way down south ridge some of the markers were pretty faded but easier to make out the trail. Great views from the top, but it was pretty windy the day I hiked so I didn’t stay too long at the top. I would definitely hike again.
