"A major shortcut connector trail for a loop up Dorr Mountain, the Hemlock Trail turns what would otherwise be a 4.1-mile round trip—up the Gorge Path and down Dorr Mountain North Ridge Trail, including a half-mile walk back to the car on the Park Loop Road—into a 3.2-mile loop hike. It can also be used to access the Sieur de Monts Spring area, via the Stratheden Trail and Jesup Path. The trail dates back more than 100 years, to the days of walking paths connecting downtown Bar Harbor to what was yet to become Acadia National Park. It even appears to still show evidence of the great fire of 1947 that destroyed much of the eastern side of Mount Desert Island, with a prominent burned-out tree hollow along the trail, just west of its junction with the Dorr Mountain North Ridge Trail."
