East Trail is a 1 mile out and back trail located near Winter Harbor, Maine and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from April until November.
The easy East Trail - climb from the small parking area on the shore side just past Schoodic Point if you are headed north on Hwy 1 - was a nice climb to the parking lot and a view to the west from a high point - Schoodic Head; open but not much better views than are along the shore drive. Lots of brush along the way too. There are better trails.
This may be the best way up to Schoodic Head. The shortest means and not too steep. Connects with other trails up top but not for a loop unless you want to walk a long ways back to car.
