Beehive Loop

Hiking in Acadia National Park

Though short in length (about 1.6 miles), the Beehive is one of the park's more challenging hikes. Starting at the trailhead just north of Sand Beach, you'll soon be climbing up steep sections along narrow exposed cliffs. At times, you'll have to scramble up iron-rung ladders along the mountain. The views at the top are outstanding – well worth the effort!
