The trail is an old road which leads to the ocean. It's very flat with minimal roots and rocks. Upon reaching the water, the trail loops through a stand of spruce and fir, occasionally providing access to the rocky shoreline.
This is a popular birding spot and there is good tidepooling at low tide. When exploring the tidepools keep these safety tips in mind.
Geocaching is prohibited within Acadia National Park; however, the park does sponsor an EarthCache Program for those seeking a virtual treasure hunt!

Acadia National Park, in response to guidance from the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services, has enacted closures to support federal, state, and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Acadia has closed all visitor services, including all restrooms, carriage roads, campgrounds, visitor centers, and the Park Loop Road including Ocean Drive. ANP will offer no services outside those that support resource protection.
The health and safety of the Park's visitors, employees, volunteers, local communities, and partners is the number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. ANP will notify the public when full operations are resumed and provide updates on its website and social media channels.
