Great spot for a good view and history lesson :)
Trails are short and easy - good for all levels, all families and furry friends.
Went at 3p - two other groups there,younger, smoking marijuana.

So many easy trails. Great view over the water. Good for all ages and for dogs.

Great view. Easy year round trail. Very cool rock formation to check out near the view.

This trail is usually pretty quiet. There is never a lot of people hiking this. Beautiful view. Bear pond is visible as well as other mountains. Very easy hike.

I overlooked this hike this past year, but am very happy that I finally went and checked it out. Not an overly tough hike, but one that has several viewpoints and vistas to enjoy. I hiked it during the dead of winter with YakTrax over my boots and had zero issues. The entire 6.6m trek took me about 2:20 total.

Will definitely be back this winter, but also a great trail running spot this summer!

I did this trail with the whole family. It is on the easy spectrum, but has a sheer drop on one side of the trail that made me nervous with my young kids. Views are nice but the trail specific to this summit is not much to look at. Not much shade once you get close to the top and it’s a very dusty trek. It’s good enough to put on your list to see, but not nice enough to go back for more. Mt. Muscoco is much more worth while.

A beautiful little trail that overlooks the craggy seawall. It’s pretty much the definition of Maine’s coastline.

My pal and I woke up at 4AM and watched the sunrise over the sea. However, in the summer months, be sure to prepare for mosquitoes as they love to hang around the seaweed.

Seeing a 7.5 mike trail and thinking “how could this be hard?” Is a mistake. The slopes and grades on the mountainside are unlike any hikes I’ve ever completed. You’re doing almost a vertical climb at some parts.

However, hard work pays off. You get some of the most beautiful scenes of the Coast and Bar Harbor to the North. Plus, you get an extreme workout that makes you feel like you completed something insane!

Directions brought us right to the parking lot/ trail head. Trail was cleared and marked well. Pretty decent view from the top.

Trail today was covered in snow but path was cut until about 1 1/2 miles in. Had to cut the rest of the way up. Used micro spikes and was ok for the most part but snowshoes in some parts would have been better. About .1 mile from peak had to turn around due to ice under the snow becoming a bit too dangerous on boulders. Tried to go around steep part but snow on side was deep. Great weather and parking lot was clear. Passed about 9 other hikers on way down.

Fun little hike! Really cool cliff/boulder area at the top. Good views out toward NH as well.

A very simple straightforward trail. However, there’s a ton of ice on this route. Even with microspikes, snow was building up beneath my boots and causing me to slip. Anticipate an extra hour or two in the winter due to icy conditions. I also saw a snowy owl at the top of Cadillac.

Fun snowy small hike with the pup!

Hiked this trail down from Cadillac after ascending via the South Ridge. A challenging trail that I took by mistake. It was very vertical and technical, and at several points I thought I'd fall and injure myself. Likely would not hike this again, especially with my dog in tow, but it was quite the rush!

Hiked down North Ridge after coming up Beachcroft. Not too difficult, but required caution as it had recently rained and there were icy sections. View of Jackson Lab for much of the way down.

Last week my dog and I hiked this trail up to Champlain and came down North Ridge trail, making a loop. One of our favorite hikes to date - awesome views on the way up! Even though it rained in the morning, the trail wasn't too bad - just use caution! I used microspikes for the icy sections.

This trail is not maintained very well. This is more of an outdoor survival training kind of trail, rather than a fun recreational trail. There are many dangerous looking widow makers, and the foot bridges have rotting timbers and exposed nails. Going in through the southern trail head took me through a prickly raspberry patch. The northern trail head was better maintained for snowmobiles. Once off the snowmobile track the path was difficult to follow. Did I mention all the poison ivy?

We included this summit on a hike which included a couple other nearby peaks. Beautiful views and some really interesting rock formations and trails as you head down from the summit toward the road/ocean.

nice walk wear good shoes

Beautiful views and great trail. We were lucky and had excellent weather on 12/31/18. If not so lucky, this hike could be dangerous for inexperienced hikers (like us). There was a good amount of ice on our hike up the South Ridge Trail, and we saw someone who had traction cleats and we wished we had thought of that. On the descent from Cadillac Mountain towards Murray Young Path, it was too steep/icy for our dog (and probably for us!), so we turned back after a quarter of a mile. I would highly recommend this any time of year, if conditions permit!

We made the mistake of doing this trail in July.... It was obscenely crowded. It really took away from the nice views.

For a city trail. It is ok. Lots of mud on this trail. Very busy walk, with people, dogs and bikes.

A great way to spend a few hours. Super-easy walk. Gorgeous views of the water.

This is a great loop but it is VERY icy right now. If you’re doing the full loop, I’d recommend taking the right side first. I think it would be easier going up rather than down (which is what we did). Also you’ll need crampons. I wouldn’t attempt it without them. It’s much less icy if you go up the left side first. Would make a good in and out hike if you’re worried about the ice. Parking lot is rough but manageable.

Great winter hike! trail was fairly easy and well marked. Went up and down orange.

I brought 2- 8 year old boys on this hike on the 1st day of summer vacation. It was a lot of work for them but well worth it. What a great day!!

What a great hike! My son and I climbed into the lower falls to enjoy the water. We weren't alone!!

We've been here a couple of times. It's always gorgeous!!
