Overview

Acadia Mountain is one of the best runs on the western side of Mount Desert Island, offering terrific views of Somes Sound. The trail starts directly across Route 102 just north of the Echo Lake Ledges parking area.

Description

From the trailhead, follow the Man O' War Brook Fire Road a short distance through the woods. Turn left at the T-junction onto the Acadia Mountain Trail, continue through the woods. Soon, you'll scramble up a steep, rocky rise that marks the ascent towards the summit. Open views will soon start to appear, and they get better the further you run. Continue past the summit and follow the trail as it drops nearly 600 feet in half a mile.

From the base of the mountain, follow the Man O' War Brook Fire Road back towards the trailhead. When you're finished with your run, consider cooling off with a refreshing swim at Echo Lake Ledges.
