tioga4 Summit Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2014

Did this with my wife on a family vacation to Acadia. We put our feet in the water at Sand Beach and then headed up the Beehive. We continued on to hit Champlain Mtn, Dorr Mtn, and finally Cadillac Mtn for an 8 mile day.

No one was really in this area of the park at all, so I had it almost to myself -- except for a few stragglers who drifted further and further behind me until the iron rungs when they realized they were in over their head.

Fun little hike.

Great times on the ladders and cliffs. Awesome views for a small amount of work. Did this as a point to point from Precipice Trail to Sand Beach with a loop over the Beehive to be able to hit the fun stuff.

My climbing mentor and myself took our climbing students up to this for a fun short hike before our beach day. This is a very fun hike with some awesome views of the bay, island and also Otter Cliffs.

I climbed this peak multiple times on various visits to Acadia National Park - one of my favorites!

Around 16, climbed it with my brother and dad. Amazing views in clear weather! They had talked up the fatal exposure, so I was a bit surprised that it turned out to be a much more casual experience, though I suppose it all depends on your tolerance of heights.

Do it early in the season (June) so you won't have to deal with traffic jams on face. Good warm up for the Precipice - see how you feel on the iron rungs here before you move on to the Precipice Trail.

I was joined by a lady who had never hiked a mountain before. The shortness of this hike allowed me to give lots of encouragement. She was breathless with the view, the exposure, and the exertion. I think I enjoyed her reaction to the summit more than my own.

I'm not sure of the exact day Noelle and I hiked this but it was a brilliant blue sky day in October. It was fun to climb up the ladders set into the rock.

Did this after the one south of it (blanking on the name now) and before Cadillac on a fun 12 mile day with Flanders. Fun one.

Part of a multiple summit, 12 mile day in Acadia. Views are nice; even on a grey, cloudy day.

Went on a family vacation to Bar Harbor in 2006, and had an incredible time. Decided to hike the Beehive, not realizing the exposure at the time. It didn't help that my wife and her sister, mother, and father are all afraid of heights. Wife was plastered to a slab of granite for over 10 minutes trying to summon the courage to take the next step. For them, it was a harrowing adventure where we were lucky to escape with our lives. For me, a nice hill to climb.

An excellent trail for getting people to extend their comfort zone. I've taken friends on the Beehive that'd be freaked out by class 3 terrain, but had no problem with exposure on the Beehive because they gained extra confidence knowing their hand and footholds were man made.
