Easy trail for hiking, snowshoeing, and biking. Trail is mostly gravel and is very wide. Lots of beautiful views of wildlife, bogs, meadows, and ponds. Best parking options are Hulls Cove Visitor Center, Eagle Lake lot near Park Headquarters, and a smaller parking area off of Duck Brook Bridge Road.

Nice loop trail that’s fairly short (~5miles) and fairly flat. You can add on some length with going partly or all way around Eagle Lake.

A one hour loop where we skipped the Eagle Lake section of the trails. A few uphill climbs but not too strenuous. My 7 & 9 year old sons did it and loved it. Gorgeous views!

Nice walk around on a well maintained path. A lot of bikes on this path. Great little lakes to see.

Very nice, wide open carriage trail. Enter in the visitor center and the trail head is located at the far back of the parking lot, past the bus stops. Very steep incline at the first 1/4-1/2 mile, but then levels out. Great for bikes and strollers. Loop was around 4.7 miles.

The carriage road to Witch Hole Pond is easily accessed from the Visitor Center. A pleasant walk to Witch Hole Pond along a graveled path shared with bike riders makes for an enjoyable family walk. People of all ages and mobility challenges would enjoy this. You'll have to catch your breath - not due to physical exertion, but because Acadia is such a beautiful park. I joined this with other trails and carriage paths to get to Jordan Pond.

Walked/hiked a couple times over the years. Relatively flat and easy, but it's a pretty boring trail. Much more scenic routes in the park!

Nice morning walk. Not too long but nice just the same. Sometimes go from Eagle lake to add another 2 miles.
