Description

A tough climb up the trail with amazing views of the Ocean and Mountains. This via ferrata-esque hike is definitely a treasure within Acadia National Park. Given the exposure, this hike is not for anyone with small kids or with a fear of heights. However, you can access the summit via another easier trail.

Short Hike: Parking lot near the trailhead.

Gem Type: Rock Formation
