The Precipice Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A short, rugged hike up a cliff to the summit of Champlain Mountain. The Precipice is an exhilarating but challenging climb, even more difficult during wet weather or in ice and snow. Dogs are not allowed, and the hike is difficult for children. General location: Near the Sieur de Monts entrance to Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island."
