A wonderful loop hike that will take you along the shore of the Atlantic, over mountain ledges to end at Sand Beach. This is a wonderful loop hike that will take you along the shore of Newport Cove past powerful Thunderhole and then up over the open ledges of Gorham Mountain. You will have beautiful ocean views along the entire route. When you come down Gorham Mountain to the north you can also run up the Bee Hive if you have the energy. After you descend back to Sand Beach spend some time out on the sand relaxing!

Great hike to add on after Champlain and Precipice if you're looking for a stretch.

This might be my favorite trail in Acadia. The view from the summit is stunning. It's just challenging enough to make you feel like you accomplished something. And my kids (ages 7 & 12) not only could handle it but also thought it was exciting.
