Jungle gym  Sucess!

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.

Kids like this hike.  Sucess!

My boys (16 and 9) can get bored with long slogs but they both lit up when introduced to scrambling up 'iron rung' trails. This was the first and bought me many more days of willing hiking with them, insistant on doing all the 'iron rung' trails in the park.

Ocean-Gorham-Beehive Loop  Sucess!

From Sand Beach, Jen, Scott, Lauren, and I hiked the Ocean Path to the Gorham Mountain trail head. Easy hike up and over Gorham to the junction with the trail to The Bowl, where Jen and Lauren headed back to the beach. Scott and I hiked up to the bowl, where I saw a beaver hanging out. Hiked over to the Beehive from there and down the ladder route. Excellent views along the whole hike. Next time I would rather go UP the ladder route though!

Fun  Sucess!

Very interesting route--not for those who dislike exposure. There are some environmental issues with the metal that's been hammered into the rock, but it's a fun route. Great views of Cadillac and Champlain.
