Precipice Trail, Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, ME
Located on the east side of Champlain Mountain in Acadia National Park, this 1,058-foot ascent across an open rock face would be a technical climb if it weren’t for the handrails and ladders provided to assist hikers. The trail closes periodically in the summer for the protection of endangered peregrine falcons.
