Update

A cool spur trail off Gorham Mountain Trail across sea cliffs and caves.

Justin Mettlen

Overview

Features: Cave — Fall Colors — Views
Family Friendly: Kids will enjoy scrambling over rocks and seeing the sea cave. While the trail features iron rings, they are little more the hand rails to assist hikers pulling themselves up a big step.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This trail begins 0.2 miles in along the Gorham Mountain Trail at a historical plaque honoring Waldron Bates, who helped build many of Acadia's trails using stone stairs and iron rungs. The trail follows granite ledges along cliffs and next to an ancient sea cave. Along the way, you'll pass under two huge rock slabs leaning against the cliff face. After traversing several large rocks, use two iron rings to reconnect with the Gorham Mountain Trail.
