Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 54 m
NOTE: A section of the Beehive Trail is closed until July 20 for trail maintenance. Please check here for more information and updates: https://www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/conditions.htm A steep climb to the top of this small mountain with wonderful views out over the Atlantic and surrounding Acadia hills The Beehive Trail is a very popular moderate to difficult out and back or loop trail using iron rungs on ledges of exposed cliffs, and is very steep, offering spectacular views of Sand Beach and the surrounding area at Acadia National Park. Start just north of and across the One way loop road from the Sand Beach parking area, climbing steps and through the forest to some exposed fairly flat rocky areas and a tall cairn of rocks marking your next steps. Be sure to look for the light blue (Carolina Blue) trail markers as the trail can be quickly lost in your enthusiasm to scale the cliffs. Stay on trail as strategically placed iron rungs, bridges and hand and foot holds take the technical part out of the climb. Once at the top you can opt to go down the back side and make it a loop or go down the way you came. Show more

A challenging but fun loop that covers all the peaks around Jordan Pond and showcases stunning views from the top of the three main peaks. There are several good "bail-out" points to the flat trail around Jordan Pond back to the parking lot if you decide you're done with ascents for the day. Be warned: there are a few serious near-vertical rock scrambles that are practically bouldering. Not recommended for wet conditions.Show more

Nice short hike with beautiful views along the way. Nice moderate 0.8 miles hike from parking area on Rt 3 to the peak. Trail has portions that could be wet in spring but are covered with board walk. The most scenic overlook is before you get to summit. Trail crosses the carriage road several times.Show more

Trails at the summits are in good conditions, this route can get steep and rocky at different sections. The views are spectacular at the top! Note that the final stretch of the South Bubble summit is not easy for people with unsteady footing or who lack the strength to pull their body weight up to landings. Show more
