Beehive Trail Acadia National Park

dailylifetravels.com

Visiting Acadia National Park? Looking for an adventurous hike? Want some beautiful views of Sand Beach and the surrounding ocean? Look no further than hiking the Beehive Trail.

If possible, I recommend parking at the Sand Beach parking lot. Note, over the summer, this lot does fill up rather quickly. The other option that may be convenient during the peak season would be the shuttle bus.

The Beehive Trail is only 0.8 miles and features an elevation gain of 520 feet of vertical climb. The Beehive trailhead starts just north of the Sand Beach parking lot.

The Beehive Trail gets steep and narrow, quickly. Other features are metal ladders, granite stairs, and rock scrambles! This trail is definitely better suited for experienced hikers!

Be sure to enjoy the beautiful views at the summit. You get a great view of the ocean if you look north, east, or south. There's no bad angle!
