A quiet trail through the gorge between Dorr Mountain and Cadillac Mountain.

Description

The A. Murray Young Path passes through the deep gorge between Dorr Mountain and Cadillac Mountain. The trail starts off mellow, passing through some lovely woods alongside a small stream. (Be sure to pack your bug repellent - especially in the spring!) As you gradually ascend the gorge, the stream becomes smaller and the navigating becomes slightly more intense. Well-crafted stone steps occasionally break up the dirt path.

The end of the trail is the most challenging section. The trail becomes far more rugged as it heads up a series of rough rocks. In Acadia, where so many trails are exquisitely manicured, the A Murray Young Path can seem a bit haggard. (Maybe its trail builders designed it that way - as a friendly reminder of how spoiled you become as you traverse through Acadia.) After scrambling up the rocks the trail ends at the intersection of the Gorge Path and the Cadillac-Dorr Connector.

Thanks to guidebook author and photographer, James Kaiser, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Acadia, check out his .
