"Hadlock Falls is the highest waterfall in Acadia National Park. It is on the shoulder of Cedar Swamp Mountain, just south of a group of low, bare peaks. The hike climbs all three peaks—Bald, Parkman, and Gilmore. The hike descends from the peaks along Maple Spring Brook through a narrow canyon. It then crosses two scenic bridges on a carriage road over Maple Spring and Hadlock Brooks before reaching the falls. Sargent and Penobscot Mountains are a constant backdrop for this hike."
