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

I hiked this loop this past Sunday! Amazing fall foliage and beautiful views. There are some challenging areas where you need to lower yourself down rocky areas. Rewarding hike!

I did the Acadia to Saveur sequence. But would absolutely go back to do that in reverse. You can't go wrong, and then head into SWH for a bite/coffee!

Great hike! Low key traffic compared to most hikes in Acadia, which is nice. Amazing views of the Sound throughout the hike. Definitely recommend. Challenging in some areas.

Well-earned scenic views; if you're doing both stop along the sound on Mt. Sauveur before continuing to the summit (no real view from the top).

The Acadia mt trail is definitely going in my top 5 for the park. Its hard, great workout, amazing views. The rocks are slippery though. I took the fire road back and it was still between 3-4 miles.

Just did this hike with my wife and two sons. My eleven year old handled it well. The views are stunning so take a camera. It is a great workout and worth the two hours or so.

My favorite hike that I did on my trip to Acadia. Not empty but vastly less crowded than similar hikes on The Loop. Beautiful views from both peaks. The ascents are hard; like many trails in Acadia, the designers didn't much care for switchbacks. Worth the effort.

Acadia mt is awesome every side of the mountain has a different environment

Hiked this with my dog a 55lb vizsla. Going up Acadia is easy but the backside is very difficult, especially with a dog. I had to lower him down my his harness several times. Once you are down st sauvuer is fine both up and down. For being such small mountains it is a challenging, fun, and quick hike. Amazing views. Saw my first peregrine falcon. I would recommend but with caution for dog owners or super small children.

Says dogs on leash but better off leaving Fido at home. There are sections where you'll need to use your hands and in some cases help your dog down. Otherwise a good hike and a good challenge. Beautiful views of course.

Great hike with gorgeous southern views down Somes Sound and across Cranberry. Some steep sections coming down Acadia; not for the faint of heart.

Acadia Mountain was absolutely gorgeous. Not any real thrills, like ladders or steep edges, but it was definitely worth it! Would suggest it to anyone! It was cool to end with Acadia mountain because of the view of the sound.
