This mountain seems to be one of the closest to Frenchman's Bay and gives you great panoramic views of both the water and neighboring mountains. A great hike that is suitable for all ages (though the seven-year-old in my group wanted to turn around a couple of times, he made it!)

Almost backed off into thin air. But alas, I realized my error and kept on. Lots of fun and very nice views of ocean/mountains. Interesting terrain.

Precipice Trail was tons of fun, up and back! Nothing like resting your life on a bunch of old rusty iron rungs. Amazing coastline views though!....ps, i'll def do it again!

Had fun on the Precipice Trail and enjoyed lunch with a view from the top before heading off to the Beehive.

Stopped by Acadia for a few days after hiking the "100-mile wilderness". This is an amazing area. Explored every inch that I had time for.

Precipice was closed thanks to those dumb falcons, took the Beachcroft Trail instead, which was great. Awesome views of Bar Harbor and Frenchman's Bay.

My girlfriend and I did this in the hot afternoon. Just the right amount of danger and such a great view. Once on top, we took a break and went down the easy way.

One of my favorite Hikes of all time! Did when I was 10. Had a super good view of the Atlantic Ocean below. Its cliffs made it great too. Enabling you to see straight down.

Went up a few times with my family. Saw a Red Fox run across the road right below the trail head. Great water views in clear weather. One of many peaks in Acadia with amazing summit views.

Got there two days before they were supposed to have opened it but lucky for us the falcons were done nesting, or whatever they had been doing. Very fun trail with some crowds but nothing too bad.

On my only visit to Acadia National Park, it was with great disappointment that I found the Precipice Trail closed due to Peregrine Falcon nesting. It was a foggy day so no great views of the harbor were seen as well.

Did Otter Cliff, Thunder Hole, Beehive, Champlain Mountain, Huguenot Head, Dorr Mountain and Cadillac Mountain from Blackwoods Campground and back. The march down Cadillac's southern ridge was the highlight of the day. Speechless.

Enjoyed the Precipice Trail with my best old 4-legged hiking buddy Rainier. Had to carry her up the ladders. She didn't mind it one bit!
