The Beehive Trail

On an overcast day we used Beehive as a short warmup for the Precipice Trail. Beehive is a great hike that can be combined with numerous ways to get down, either via the front or back-side or via the Bowl Trail or even via connector to the Gorham Mountain trail. We went up the front, around the Bowl and down the Gorham Mountain and Cadillac Cliffs trails (about 2.5 miles). Some folks got off trail going up which offered some additional challenges to get back on the trail (follow the Carolina Blue markers). The top of the Beehive has some great 360 degree views, and even with the gray skies we were not disappointed. This hike is a must do if you are at Acadia NP.

Jordan Cliffs Trail

Great, but scary, hike. For those of us who struggle with heights and ledges, but choose to push through, this is a challenging trail. One finds himself/herself on a ledge perched high on a cliff-face about halfway up the trail. The trail is well maintained and very safe, but I had to make sure not to look down too often!

Dorr Mountain Ladder Trail

A challenging but fun trail. It begins with steep rock steps for approximately 3/4 of a mile, followed by some iron rung ladders to climb. It then leads to an incline up the mountain's granite face. The trail's grade will make you sweat, but you'll enjoy the challenge!

Precipice Trail

Hiking (climbing) on an overcast day in mid-August, the Precipice Trail was moderately busy as one of the first open days of the season. What was surprising after all the hype (forget it if you get vertigo), the strategically placed iron rungs, ladders and handholds make it less dangerous than Katahdin's Knife Edge between Pamola and Chimney peaks. We climbed up and then traveled the North Champlain trail to the Orange and Black trail on the way down, making it a great loop trail. As you are climbing, leave any hiking poles behind - they'll just get in the way. Some really cool climbing opportunities, some really exposed cliffs and a great sense of accomplishment when you reach the top. Take your time and enjoy stopping for pictures. One of the best views is the parking lot below... it gets smaller and smaller. Great workout and huge rewards for your effort... highly recommend it!

Maiden Cliff Trail

Great hike to some spectacular views (along with a good workout), watch out for slippery spots and a few steep areas where you need to be careful - use roots, trees and rock handholds. We took the trail to the right at the boulder (toward the Ridge trail) and down the other side. It might be easier to go up via the left fork, but there are tricky spots either way. I took a tumble descending a slick boulder, but survived the fall. The Ridge Trail will also take you to Mt. Megunticook. We had a great time enjoying the solid rock Adirondack chairs near the top with a great view, saw hawks and even a glider... went down trail to the cross and enjoyed the cliff's edge there. Sweeping views of Lake Megunticook and the surrounding hills. Highly recommend this hike as some say it's better than Mt. Megunticook/Mt. Battie - we liked them both.

Beautiful exposed views the entire climb. Very rewarding summit with ridgeline hiking at the peak. Definitely worth an early morning trip before crowds. Descend on Orange and Black Trail for parking lot.
