Ocean trail, as people mentioned, was really packed. Better to grab a view then drive over to start at Gorham loop.

Smooth climb up and great views along this trail. It only gets a little rocky on the way down. Slightly crowded but still worth the climb.

Great views and easy uphill hiking on large flat rocks. My only criticism is that it was super crowded, so try to go during off-hours if you like a little more nature-space:)

Some of the best views we have seen in Acadia! We took bowl up the backside of beehive to avoid the iron rungs and crowds. The whole loop took 2 hours. Pretty easy morning.

great loop. very crowded at the beginning and end (we parked between Sand Beach and Thunder Hole), but the crowds weren't bad up or down closer to the summit. Perfect weather. All in all, well worth fighting the crowds.

Gorsham hike is beautiful and not hard; ocean path was very crowded and the path itself is okay, right next to the road, but offers many opportunities to see the spectacular cliffs.

A great 7 mile hike from our hotel in otter creek through some easy to moderate trails and back around. The hike up to Gorham summit was very manageable with comfortable terrain (not many boulders) which was great for our less than perfect knees and ankles.
