Enjoyed the hike to get to the views! You can look over to Cadillac Mountain and so much more. Make sure you take your binoculars, you can see the people on Cadillac Mountain!

I like the roaring of the waters, we took a hike from Sand Beach to Thunder role, and Park across the street, for lunch. People around are very accomodating, courteous, and pleasant.

A real WOW. If you love watching water and its interaction with rocks, changing colors and sounds this is a must see.

This was an excellent hike from the Pumping Station to the top. Our reward was ocean view in all directions. Intermediate Lite I would call it. The connectors that come off of this trail are good woodsy walks, and we were happy to have a bit of everything.

The Park was closed! No dogs, no kids, no cars....... silence and hikers and bikers. They should close the government more often!

This was a great hike with spectacular views. The old fire tower made it that much more interesting. When you get to that point, you must stop and climb those rocks and the first floor of the tower. (You can't see much from the trail itself) Once you hoist yourself over the boulders, be prepared to gasp. On a clear... More

Beech Cliff Trail and loop has the most spectacular view in the Park for the least amount of walking; the walking is steep but level ground for those like me that can't physically walk far. It has cliffs overlooking SW harbor, Greening Island, Echo Beach, and Norwood Cove. Its a great place for sitting on the rocks and reading a... More

Our whole family from 76 to 12 years old completed this trail. A few incline in some places but a great trail with some beautiful ocean views.

My wife and I are in our 50s, and this is our favorite 1/2 day hike in Acadia. Only 2.5 miles or so, yet some sections offer a good moderate climb. Start from the parking lot - if you begin the trail on the right side, you'll have a pretty steep climb up. My suggestion is to start along the... More

Bring your camera and binoculars. Don't be in a hurry. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful views. Pull over to let traffic pass you.
