A challenging climb up iron rungs to spectacular views and a visit to a quiet and beautiful mountain pond. The challenging nature of this hike up the Beehive makes it one of the most popular hikes in the park. The fact that it is just across the road from Sand Beach and has good views probably adds to its popularity as well. The Bowl is a beautiful pond nestled between the Beehive and Champlain Mountain and is one of the two ponds in the park that are accessible only by foot (Sargent Pond is the other).
