The time of the day we visited, we were not able to experience the loud boom of thunder hole. We were told you have to go a certain time in the morning and then in the afternoon in order to hear the boom sound that the water gives out.

We hiked the park loop trail from sand beach and up to Thunder Hole. It was low tide and not too much Thunder, but the ranger was there and managed the gates. I hear folks get killed almost every year from going too far and getting swept away on the rocks. We turned out path and went up the Gorham mt trail and took the Cadillac Cliffs route....wow, that was strenuous. But I loved it. I'll go back again and maybe see the Thunder Hole at it's full glory. Acadia is beautiful.

Nice place to stop along the Park Loop trail road. Part of the walk way was closed because of rainy weather conditions

And so much fun scrambling around on the rocks. Hearing the waves crashing against the rocks provides the enchantment of the sea. Could spend hours here. Never really got to hear the 'thunder' even though we were here at high tide. Perhap next time!

...can only leave you awestruck. The force of the waves were so strong at one point that those visitors standing adjacent to this area received some of the backsplash. The site is easily reached by man-made staircase with a side railing and the background provides a wonderful backdrop for some nice pictures.
