The sea washes against the shore hundreds of feet below the pink Cadillac Cliffs, but these rock formations were once submerged below the ocean’s surface. As the Cadillac Cliffs Trail winds through huge rock slabs perched against each other and skirts the base of the cliffs and an ancient sea cave, it provides a reminder of nature’s powerful forces. A spur off the Gorham Mountain Trail, the Cadillac Cliffs Trail can be done as the first half of a loop or the second half. Hiking the cliffs first brings you to the interesting rock formations more quickly.
