If you want to go hiking away from the crowds in Bar Harbor and Acadia, come to the Schoodic Peninsula and enjoy the peace and solitude on this trail. It has amazing views from the top and is worth the trip.

This is an amazing area of our NE country. There are many great places to stop and visit. The entire area around this mountain has nice shops and beautiful scenery. It is worth the time to slow down and visit.

Two people recommended the Schoodic peninsula as an alternative to the Mt. Desert section of Acadia National Park. They were correct as there were no crowds or traffic to deal with and we spent a leisurely few hours driving around and exploring. I took the...More

We took the steepest route to the top. The east trail. About 1 mile round trip. It actually was pretty steep in places but very doable. Watch out for low branches. I smacked my head. Decent views from the top

This is a great afternoon hike with the benefit of Berry snacks along the way. What a view of Flanders bay!
