Excellent relatively easy hike with beautiful views of Sand Beach, Great Head, and the ocean. Lots of prime mountain blueberries and huckleberries that the kids all enjoyed.
Enjoyable hike when looking for an easier hike. Great views from the summit. I recommend taking the Cadillac Cliffs Trail on the ascent and returning the whole way on the Gorham Mountain Trail. Lots of "rock-hopping" on Cadillac Cliffs to keep it interesting.
Very easy hike. Took about 40 min to the summit of Gorham. Great views from there though... If you continue to "the bowl" its another 40 min but also very nice small lake inbetween peaks. "The beehive" took another 30 minutes to get up. From there almost the same views as Gorham but very nice just the same. We took the steep trek back down the beehive to the coast which I would recommend going up that way and down the other way. Altogether a great somewhat easy yet rewarding half day hike.
