Loved this hike! Wasn’t sure I could “face my fear” on the 3 ladders, but it wasn’t bad. Great workout on the steep stone steps. Amazing views!

Not easy, but very interesting and rewarding. Stone steps up and down.

this was a great hike the first 1/2 mile is paved and there is exercise equipment along the path then it goes behind the sewage plant and, more into the woods very easy hike but make sure you bring the alltrails app because there are a few paths to take along the way and could easily get turned around. But all in all a great hike with scenery along the river

Did this with my daughter and her little friend, both are 8. It is a pretty steady ascent, but not to the point where it is super challenging at any point. A couple of very little scrambles here and there but not at all difficult. Great views, and a good workout, without feeling like you overdid it. Will come back with my wife and do it again.

The views make this trail.

A little harder than anticipated. Some pretty steep inclines on the way in and out, but plenty of vistas to keep you interested.

The last 1/3 mile was practically an 80% incline. I'm not a cliff climber.

Beautiful little hike!

Enjoyed this hike.

im glad no one is familiar with or likes this trail. its kept the traffic down. it took a while to learn the trails but after that it was great. we walk it every night.

This was a really nice little walk. This is a very claiming walk.

A little to steep for me. Came down this trail after going up Ledges trail. Then walked back to the car about 1.5 miles. It was a great day to hike.

I loved that this was not so steep going up. Just challenging enough for a great workout. Up this trail down Bald Peak trail. The view was so pretty. Really windy at the top. Will be back.

We added a little extra distance and a little more craggy climbing by starting on the Alder Trail and picking up the Anvil off the service road. Seeing the USGS mapmaking medallion from 1860 at Schoodic Head was cool. So was sunning ourselves on the rocks at the shore when we finished.

Our daughter turned 3 last month and the was the perfect first hike out of the backpack for her.

Take it clockwise and you get the challenging stretch out of the way early. Views from the top are close to 360 degrees. Spectacular by any definition.

Did Beehive after completing Precipice. It's different than precipice - iron rungs not present when needed and you need to use rocks to pull yourself in a couple of places.

This happened to be my first hike in Acadia. Was fun and also the fact that there is no going back helps - you just climb and finish it! :)

Did the loop clockwise and ended up checking Bubble Divide (tough climb) - but ended up seeing Bubble rock and an awesome view of Jordan pond from up top.

Climb is a bit tough - coming down tougher - Started raining - so skipped St Sauveur and came back via Man O War Truck road)

"Endless" set of stairs - but was fun. Came back via Dorr South Ridge instead of Schiff path.

Great trail... lots of variety and wonderful views! Challenging but not too hard. Only crowded at the top. Do it!!!

This is a great park for walking and running. Very well maintained.

This was a great hike. I didn't think it was all that hard. It had a mix of things on the trail from woodsy along the Debouillie Lake, to huge boulders as part of the trail, to the gradual climb and switchbacks. The views from the tower on top of Debouillue Mt. were beautiful. The whole Debouillie Land Area is beautiful!

Definitely a fun trail, not very difficult. Much more subdued version of Precipice Trail but still fun. It’s also very short.

Really fun trail with lots of side trails. Dog loved it. Not too many people on a Friday afternoon.

Would rate this as a hard but amazing trail. Wonderful views most of the way. Would recommend coming off the peak to the left to avoid very steep area. Following the carriage trail to left when you come to it and then picking up the trail again.

Hiked the whole thing before realizing there's no ladders on this trail.
