3. Precipice Trail, Acadia National Park
1.6 miles, round-trip
Views of the ocean from the mountains of the Northeast are special, and experienced hikers will say that it’s something you need to experience yourself. We’ve chosen the Precipice Trail in Acadia National Park for said experience. The steep trail climbs 1,000 feet up narrow ledges on the east face of Champlain Mountain in .8 miles, providing a dramatic (and dizzying) view of the rugged coast.
