A short, rugged hike up a cliff to the summit of Champlain Mountain. The Precipice is an exhilarating but challenging climb, even more difficult during wet weather or in ice and snow. Dogs are not allowed, and the hike is difficult for children. General location: Near the Sieur de Monts entrance to Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island.

This was the first hike I took in a National Park and I've been hooked on hiking since then. This hike is almost stright up and stright down. There are wrungs provided on the trail to assist the climb. Some locals use this trail as a bi-weekly workout. This hike is pure fun.
