Preparation: I watched the youtube videos and read the reviews well in advance. I prepared mentally and stayed in average shape prior to my trip to Acadia in September of 2016. Despite the foreboding elder at the trailhead warning me of the man who died earlier this year on the way down after reaching the summit, I remained confident that... 更多
I was really nervous heading into this hike with all of these reviews. I'm kind of woozy when it comes to heights/cliffs, Not in the best shape right now, but was an athlete for most of my life so I have the coordination. This trail really wasn't that bad at all and is absolutely worth the view. I never once... 更多
This is a fun unique trail with climbing. The views are beautiful at the top but the hike is the best part. Do not take little children like under 10 or dogs. There are some straight up climbing and straight down cliffs but if you are in shape and focused it is plenty safe. have fun!
This is not for the faint at heart. Wear good hiking shoes and bring lots of water as you hike up the trail. It is worth the hike up and the view is amazing. Returning down the mountain you can choose from many different trails. The Trail is well marked, you need to be able to hike over boulders and... 更多
This is not for the faint at heart. We climbed straight up the Cadillac Mt. using granite steps and iron rungs to get up. Don't attempt if you are afraid of heights. It was a beautiful view from the top.
First of all, make sure you have a parking pass for your vehicle. If you don't then make your way over to the entrance or visitor center. Make sure you have good endurance for this hike.This hike was one of kind! Please know that there are alternative routes to get to the top of Precipice. Actually, for most of Acadia... 更多
So there's a lot of signage and chatter around the Precipice Trail and some of it is spot on but don't be deterred if you're a hiker. It's definitely not an easy hike and it does in fact have lot's of iron rungs. However, it is absolutely doable and worth the trek. We made it from the parking lot to... 更多
The precipice walk is very challenging and very hard but very rewarding with amazing views! We travelled with two children 12 and 10 and they both found it challenging since they've never done things like this before! But both made it up! A tip is to bring lots of water since the sun can really make it difficult! Try and... 更多
This is an advanced hike that includes climbing and bouldering. You should only attempt this hike if you have experience with climbing and bouldering. This is not just a walk on a trail. For those who like this sort of thing it is a good experience with a great view from the top when there is no fog. See my... 更多
To begin, I totally chicken'd out last year, and did not do this trail. I am very afraid of heights, and nearly cried the entire way up the "baby Precipice", aka the nearby BeeHive trail. This year, I decided to face my fear and just do it. The trail started off fairly easy, and got trickier as the treeline diminished.... 更多
