Sundew Trail Professional Review and Guide
"For a short hike, the Sundew Trail packs in a lot. There are three different spurs to some tremendous Schoodic shoreline, offering views of Cadillac Mountain across Frenchman Bay in the distance, huge granite gorges, and then a quiet cove.The Sundew Trail, named for the sticky, insect-eating plants of Acadia, starts over some log bridges and through a spruce forest. At 0.2 mile, at the first of three junctions with short spurs to the shore, turn left (west) at a sign to ocean benches and start a mild descent over roots and some erosion-preventing logs."
