The Schoodic Connector Trail links 6.5 miles of trail from US-1 in Sullivan to the summit of Schoodic Mountain.

Frenchman Bay Conservancy has connected over 1,100 acres of conserved land from US-1, north to the Down East Sunrise Trail. The conserved land includes the Conservancy’s Baker Hill, Long Ledges, and Schoodic Bog Preserves off of Punkinville Road and Schoodic Bog Road in Sullivan.

From the Schoodic Bog Trail's junction with the Down East Sunrise Trail, a trail on privately owned land leads to the top of Schoodic Mountain. The Schoodic Mountain Trail leads down the other side of the mountain to the State of Maine's Donnell Pond Public Reserved Land. Schoodic Mountain's summit is bare and flat with 360 degree views, including dramatic views over Frenchman Bay and Mount Desert Island.  The Donnell Pond Public Reserved Land includes more than 14,000 acres of remote forested land with crystal clear lakes, secluded ponds, and mountains with panoramic views.  This public land includes miles of trails traversing Black, Caribou, and Tunk Mountains.

Other Information

The trail up Schoodic Mountain from the Down East Sunrise Trail is on private property, please use respectfully.

I really enjoyed this trail but wanted to note that the posted map is incomplete and hard to read. It doesn't match the conditions on the trail. For example there are non sequential numbers at some trail junctions that don't appear on the map making it difficult to determine your location. Hopefully the Conservancy is working to update their map. Regardless, this trail is well worth visiting.
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures in Maine!
