Wonderful trail for a sunrise hike. Aside from the summit the trail was well marked and easy to follow. Wonderful views!

There were amazing views and the trail was a lot easier then I had expected!

It's a tough hike but the trail allows rest by flattening out after the steep inclines. Start at the Schoodic Mt trail head and follow to the top. Views of the Bar Harbor Acadia Mountains are perfect. On the way down, take the Schoodic Beach trail split down to the lake then loop back to the parking area.

One of my all time favorite hikes to do, especially when you include camping on Donell Pond! We hiked up from Schoodic Beach, this part of the trail is very steep in some areas, but isn't super long, maybe 1.4 miles? Once you get to the top, you'll want to stay there all day! 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and an amazing view of frenchman bay! We hiked/ran down the other trail that leads to the parking lot, which seemed a bit longer than the hike from the beach, definitely some pretty technical parts there! It's great to make it a loop trail and incorporate Black mountain as well since it is easily accessible from the parking area.

This was a great challenging hike. The size of the mountain can be deceiving, but the almost straight up hike will burn your legs. The hike at a fast pace took us right around 45 minutes, if you we're to take your time I would plan on an hour 15. Overall great hike and amazing views of Acadia.
