It was a tough hike over the rocks but a beautiful hike through the woods. Trail well marked on the way up to overlook but we had to guess in spots coming down. The only person we saw was from the Schoodic Research getting ready for nature walks in the summer. The last part of the walk was on the road which wasn’t so bad because it was next to the water.

We saw a pod of dolphins jumping through the waves very close to the rocks. So cool!

The climb up the mountain is a little tougher than you'd guess but it's a quick and easy hike. Did it at 8 am on a summer Saturday and only saw one other group of 2 people on the trail, a nice change of pace for Acadia.

The beginning was a little tricky but the view at the overlook was totally worth it. 10/10 would hike again.
