Views from summit are incredible; including Atlantic Ocean, Cranberry Isles, nearby surrounding Acadia summits, and Sand Beach. Out and back trail with options to continue on to Beehive, The Bowl, and Champlain Mtn. Recommend reaching parking early during peak season. Gorham Trailhead parking lot is quite limited. Nearby Fabbri parking lot is better option. Had the privilege of joining my kid's high school field trip group on one of Acadia's Ranger-led hikes up Gorham Mtn in May 2018. Highly recommend these knowledgeable tour guides!

My family started in the Ocean trail and stopped by Thunder hole walked another .2 miles to Gotham trail head. We also added the Cadillac Cliffs to the hikes which added a little bit more mileage and a lot more fun. Gotham has great views of Sand Beach. Easy way down back to Loop Road at Sandy Beach entrance. It was an excellent combination.

Very nice hike. Path includes a lot of rocks but is not that dangerous. Hiking shoes recommended. Great views at the top.

Parking is tough at this trailhead. Best to get there early in the morning. Is a nice alternative to sunrise on Cadillac.

Very nice moderate hike with wonderful views. Fun trail, with lots of rock to scramble up. Not too difficult that my wife and I could't carry our daughters up in our kid carrier back packs (though they both got out for some portions to go at the trail themselves). The views at the top really are spectacular.

Nice addition to a combo loop of Beehive, Bowl, and Ocean Path.
