Ascent Trip ReportWhile spending a weekend up in the Bar Harbor area my father and I decided to take a couple hours and hike Cadillac Mountain. Since I am in the latter part of knee rehabilitation we decided to only hike up and meet the rest of the family at the summit, enjoy the view, and ride down in the car.
We hopped onto the South Ridge Trail off of Route 3 and took it straight up, including the side spur to get Eagle Crag summit. It is a pleasant trail with a steady but not steep incline, perfect for what I was looking for. The views from Cadillac over the Maine shore and Acadia NP are stunning and well worth a visit whether hiking or driving up!
