Anvil Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The longest hike on Schoodic Peninsula, the Anvil Trail provides access to views from both the rocky knob known as the Anvil and the 440-foot Schoodic Head. The trail starts by climbing through woods of ash, birch, and spruce. Highlights: Hike up the Anvil and Schoodic Head; great views.

There aren’t many hikes here, and the longest one is only 0.9 mile long, but what Schoodic lacks in trails, it makes up for in solitude. The closest most visitors to Acadia get to Schoodic is atop Cadillac Mountain, when they look southeast from the summit parking lot and see the distinctive Schoodic Head in the distance, across Frenchman Bay."
