This is a super easy but very beautiful stroll along the waterfront. A great choice if you are looking for a walk anyone and everyone can do!

Very nice flat loop trail. Very easy to follow the trails, but the intersection markings we're questionable. Also the maps provided we're not easy to follow. Plenty of parking. No great photo ops, but a nice trail to get some miles in.

beautiful views

loved this walk- some folks were saying it should be easy, here's the thing- if you're looking for a place to take anyone with mobility issues, it's would be a hard go, there are a few stairs, some narrow ways, etc. it's beautiful, quiet, and a great place to be on a Saturday morning.

Gentle, flat walk along the water.

This is a great hike. Started with St. S so that we could go up the boulders. Hike is ok for athletic dogs as the rocks on the back side of Acadia get challenging.

Great little hike for little tikes!

Trail wasn’t marked very well. But the view from the top was worth it

The side facing Jordan pond is very steep with a lot of boulders and rocks. Very fun but much more challenging than the other side which was a much more gradual incline.

I live on MDI and have made it my goal to hike every mountain; so far, this has been my favorite as it is challenging but not too strenuous. Since it’s an out of the way spot, there aren’t many other hikers. The views are amazing! If you hike at the right time you will also get a chance to snack on an abundance of blueberries. I love the fact that they have even made a spot at the Bernard mountain overlook to leave messages. I will definitely hike this again soon!

Had never heard of this trail before, but so glad we found it. Turned out to be an amazing hike! We did Penobscot trail up to the summit and took Spring trail back down. You get a little bit of everything. Step descent.

Our group of 4 hiked this on June 12, 2018.
We did just the hike to East Baldpate and came back and took Table Rock down, for about 7.4-8 miles.
This is a strenuous hike, but it was fabulous! Be ready for rough trails, stairs, boulders, roots, etc. it is the Maine AT, after all! We needed more water, so I was glad o had my Sawyer filter to use.
Take your time and you’ll do well on this challenging hike. The view up at the top of East Baldpate is amazing! One of the best I’ve seen. We ate our lunch at the lean-to/shelter. There’s a privy there, too.
Enjoy this hike - not easy, but great!

A wonderful hike which rewards you with excellent views at the top! Much of the trail is rock and slab... bring proper footwear. It’s a lot of gain over a short distance, but still, a moderate classification is appropriate I think. Also, there’s many flat spots on the way up to stop and rest, which also have amazing views. Biggest downfall is that once you get to the summit it is beyond crowded with people who drive up. Maybe it’s just me but it looses some of the majesty being surrounded by people who burned gas, not energy haha. There’s a spot about .1 miles before the summit that feels like it might be the top... perfect spot to grab some photos and enjoy your accomplishment away from touristy eyes.

A solid hike

Well maintained. Well marked.

Good short hike. Not great for trail running.

A nice hike with some steeps, but not too much. The view from the bench at the top is beautiful.

Views of the cove and ocean are amazing! The walk itself is nothing remarkable.

Outstanding trail. Excellent use of technical skills. Our favorite trail in the park. Definitely a must hike if you plan to visit the park.

Beautiful views. Just the right amount of challenges for a family hike. I agree with the moderate rating. Great hike if you like to take pictures!

Beautiful views but VERY crowded during daylight hours (and sunrise/sunset)

This trail was fairly easy but has a beautiful view! You can take a nice refreshing dip in the bowl if you’re up to it, or relax and enjoy the view for a bit before continuing with your hike.

I enjoyed this trail. I would personally rate it moderate or moderate-hard, although the distance is fairly long which can be tiresome for some hikers. The views throughout were breathtaking and definitely worth the consistent uphill ascent! Cadillac can get pretty crowded near the parking lot area once you reach the top, so it’s nice to stay towards the less populated areas for a more serene atmosphere.

Beautiful views throughout the trail, but like others have mentioned, it is much longer than expected. The trail itself os fairly simple, easy, and flat, but it can take a little long depending on how many times you stop to take in the view or the pace you are walking at.

Love this trail! Did it both times i was in acadia. I prefer going up steep rocks so I prefer to go counter clockwise. you choose when you cross sand beach, go up steps and come to giant circle stone. Go right for counter clock trail. Also my favorite part is scrambling down to the farthest out rocks at the ocean and seeing tide pools at the point. Great views looking back at sand beach and beehive if you do scramble down and look back.
