From boardwalks and bridges to stone staircases and sheer cliff faces, this varied terrain will keep older children engaged as they seek the scenic summit. Few of Acadia National Park’s visitors venture up Penobscot Mountain—a hike offering some of Acadia’s most interesting terrain and sweeping panoramic views. While sections of the hike will challenge even experienced youngsters, the rewards and the grand sense of accomplishment are well worth the effort.
