The Beehive in Acadia
Many people get their first glimpse of The Beehive from the Sand Beach parking lot just south of the Park Loop Road Entrance Station located on the eastern side of Mount Desert Island. What The Beehive lacks in true height (520 feet or 158 m), it more than makes up for when the spectacular coastal setting is considered. There is a fairly steep hiking trail (rated strenuous) that begins about 100 feet before the access road to the Sand Beach parking lot. The trail goes up its eastern face and provides gorgeous views of scenery below. The summit may also be accessed via the Gorham Mountain Trail. (view Hiking Trails)
