Jimmy RiversScary trail up the cliff  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2012

What a fun trail, yet scary at points! Climbed up the iron rungs and ladders bolted into the cliff, up the vertical face to the top of Champlain! Don't take this trail if you have any remote fear of heights. Also, test out the ladders, as they seemed old and beat up. Lots of fun though, highly recommended!

Not difficult, but it will make you think. Took my 13 year old along and he had no problems, nor was I worried about him. Sadly a college student died from a 60 foot fall off a ledge on this trail two days after we hiked/climbed it, so the potential for disaster is present.

Good scramble up the mountain. It's funny how few people hike this gem when at Acadia. Most people I saw just stopped at the parking lot, got out of their cars for a little spell to look up at the Precipice, and then get back in their car and drive on. One of my favorite trails at Acadia.

I Loved this hike/climb. Just challenging enough for me. The views are incredible at every point and only get better as you go up. The hike back down is quite a bit easier.I wouldn't bring young kids on this trail.

I did this when I was 10 years old with my family. It was loads of fun being a kid and scrambling up rock, and hiking on cliff faces. Its still one of my favorite hikes of all time! Great view of the Atlantic Sea from the top.
