Nice challenging hike in snowshoes. We left from the entrance to Cadillac at 5am , trying to catch the sunrise at 6:20. We were about 15 minutes from the summit when the sun rose, but we found a nice rocky ridge to watch it. Finished the hike before heading down.

This is your basic "steady climb up, and steady climb down" hike. Beautiful views virtually every step.

Another great hike - this one is pretty uphill over rock with uneven terrain. We went on a day where it was down-pouring, very windy, and very cold - although that probably wasn't the greatest idea, we had an amazing time on this trail and would definitely return in the future. Definitely wear hiking boots and, if you attempt during the winter, be prepared for ice! Agree with moderately-strenuous rating

Would be a great hike in clear weather. The descent was challenging and slippery after a rainfall.

Beautiful views of Acadia. Hiked on a clear day. Challenging if you are not in good physical condition.

Views are amazing and worth the hike. A bit of a tough hike for me only because of climbing the boulders and large rocks which we don't have much of in Texas. A lot of tourists and cars at the summit.

We made a loop of this trail by connecting from Cadillac Summit to Gorge Path. We parked at the Gorge Path trailhead and finished on the North Ridge, walking down the road to our car.
