Took this down from the summit after ascending Precipice - great views of Bar Harbor from the top. Take orange/black path as a shortcut to the Precipice parking lot.

Did it in late June with a family of 4 of varying physical fitness levels. Awesome views and a very well marked trail.

This isn't a difficult hike, but there are a couple of scrambles to get past. However, this hike has views pretty much immediately, so you're in awe the entire time. :)

Steepish incline in beginning rewarded with awesome pics on top. Highly recommended. This hike culminated an awesome week of hiking

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.

900 ft up over 1 mile. There are some very steep points usually followed by stretches of more gradual incline. Many places to pull off the trail and take in a view or rest, but save some pictures for the summit.

Excellent hike with awesome views. The trail consists of both wooded terrain and exposed granite.

Nice and very manageable trail. Views from the top are breathtaking as almost everywhere in Acadia.
