Lovely walk

Moderate hike. Trail markers need improving. But it was a great day today.

It was difficult with the snow cover, but incredibly beautiful!

FANTASTIC hike!!! moderate but totally doable for even a beginner. it does get steep towards the top, just take your time. the rattlesnake pool and gorge are worth a stop - so majestic and beautiful! the view from the top is one of the best. warning: the trails are NOT well marked. if it wasn’t for this app and a hiker we passed, we would have been plenty lost. the lookout at the top was almost impossible to find. thinking it may be easier to navigate when all the snow melts. the trails were very slippery - lots of wet leaves - just be careful. our pup loved this hike! happy trails!

Great easy hike. Did with a 3 and a 7 year old. Open areas along the water get hot and sunny while the wooded sections offer shade. Many mountain bikes and dogs. Saw a great blue heron and an egret (I think). Easy footing. Not easy/wide enough for a stroller, but easy enough for the toddler’s little feet! A few benches along the way to sit and watch the birds.

Straight forward out and back with a few side trails. Pretty dry overall and would be a great trail running spot. The housing foundations are pretty cool.

Was a nice walk but early spring so the ground was a bit wet with downed trees across path. They were in the middle of cleanup so good to know the trail is maintained.

Nice area. Trails are short so it is kind of hard to find your way to the longer ones. Dogs aren’t actually allowed.

Trails were clearly marked (easy to follow), would say a very beginner friendly trail. $4/adult to enter park (pay at the gate). Dog friendly (must be on a leash), heavily trafficked. We went in mid April and there was still some spots that had snow, other parts were very wet! We stayed to the trails on the parking lot side (there are bathrooms), there's more trails across the street by the campground.

Great place to hike! However, even though it says on here that dogs are allowed, dogs are not allowed at Fields Pond.

Short quick hike. Not much of a view. Doesn't allow dogs.

Nice view of Camden

on Ocean Path Trail

This was a great place to start for our first trip to Acadia. We came off season, so there were no crowds. Walking instead of driving the route allowed for many photo ops and for us to enjoy every bit of the scenery. However, I would not do this trail again on another trip back to Acadia.

Nice easy hike. Pleasantly surprised by the view at the top.

Please stay on trails and out of the fields from April to August to protect nesting birds and hay crop health. ALLTRAILS: Please add this as a Tip. Thank you.

Beautiful summit view of the ocean and the beach is an absolute gem. The “trail” is just a road fluctuating between dirt & pavement. The terrain is easy, the incline is a good workout, especially since it’s out & back so you have to climb the mountain twice. I’ll be back

Nice little hike. The green trail was a little too steep for the two 10 year old boys we had with us, but the rest of the hike was nice.

I can't wait to go back with the family when the snow melts. Nice, well marked trail. Mid April is not the time to hike this trail as the main trail is the snow run off route. Many times the trail was under 6"+ of water.

A short distance into the trail, there is a small path that leads you to a big rocky outcrop along the ocean. You can enjoy a great view of the lighthouse and the cliffs at Gulliver’s Hole from there.

Lots of fun if you don’t mind climbing some steep sections with the help of iron rungs, and a couple of precarious sections along a cliff face. Great views all around.

Short trail. Crowded at sunset but worth it to catch an iconic glimpse of Acadia.

90% of this trail was awesome! What a great challenge for someone training to do the bigger mountains in NH. Warning: after maiden head cliff, this takes you to the bottom and has you follow the road for a bit. This leads you to a trail that is extremely poorly marked! Lost it so many times and ended up in the middle of no where. Definitely stick to the marked trail and you’ll have a much more enjoyable hike!

So enchanting! Even though it’s mid-April, it was about 35 degrees, windy, and hailing part of the time and even with that, it was a FANTASTIC trail. I loved that we could keep expanding on the original trail and get more mileage. The river trail was so beautiful. Lots of tree damage from the winter, but it made it even more beautiful. Lovely flat hike!

Cons: lots of trash, can hear the highway the entire time, & even what looks like a hobo camp.
Pros: a TON of different kinds of birds, easy, right off the highway.

Cool little hike!
The path shown on the map is nowhere close to the actual trail though. Starting at the parking area, I followed what appears to be an ATV trail to the summit from which you can enjoy expansive, but not very dramatic views.
On the descent, I tried to follow the gps line on the map shown here, but that was kind of a mistake. That path follows a steep course with loose footing and rock slides. After some slow scrambling, I bushwhacked it back to the summit, where I noticed a series of pink tape perhaps marking the trail down.
Followed those, but they veered off away from the parking area, so I bushwhacked it again back to my car.
Phew! Some good exercise and nice views.

Enjoyed this hike. Not many people on it today but it was chilly and overcast
