This is a great trail down to an isolated rocky beach. My dogs and older mother loved it.

Great little jaunt down one of Acadia's lesser known streams. Well established, root-filled trail follows the stream from Cooksey road down to the "beach". A small pool forms before the water filters down through the rocks into the cove, creating a very interesting waterway. Decent spot for a quick dip to cool down. Rocky beach flanked by cliffs provides a great place to have lunch without the crowds of nearby trails and beaches.

Fantastic trail for all ages. We just took our 3 and 5 year old on it and they loved it. It included a couple of bridges, a log boardwalk and a beautiful granite beach at the end.
