Excellent climb up, would recommend alternate route down via the Bowl. Or if you are really up for a hike do the 3.6 miles to Rt. 3 via the South Ridge of Champlain Mountain down to Rt 3 via the Beachcroft trail. Stunning views the entire way!
The view from the top of The Beehive is amazing. You can see Sand Beach and everything around it. The Trail up the front of the is a tough climb, but if you take The Bowl trail the hike up to The Beehive will be lots easier, but a longer hike.
Best hike ever. Very stimulating. Stay alert! Must be in decent condition.
beautiful climb, overlooking sand beach, but too short. Must do BEFORE precipe,(too lame in comparison). it is otherwise ok
For a different kind of hike this trail is great! Unlike any other I've ever done. It's more like a climb than a hike though, and the hike down the other side to the bowl is a nice and welcome change of pace.
