Schoodic Mountain

Schoodic Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"A hike to the summit of a mountain northeast of Frenchman Bay. Offering a panoramic view of the mountains of Acadia National Park, this hike is a good way to get your legs in shape after a long winter. General location: Near the town of Sullivan about halfway between Ellsworth and Cherryfield in the Tunk Lake region, Hancock County.

This is a popular hike, so if you go on a weekend in summer you will probably see other hikers. The trail begins on a paved road leading east from the trailhead. At 0.1 mile the trail heads left on a dirt fire road. You have a good view of Schoodic Mountain from this point. At 0.5 mile the trail crosses a small brook. At 1 mile the trail crosses some
railroad tracks, follows them to the right for a short distance, then turns left and into mixed woods of white pines, oaks, and maples."

"From the waterfront in Bar Harbor, the shiny granite summit of Schoodic Mountain rises to the north of Frenchman Bay. Frequently seen by Acadia visitors who opt for more crowded trails on Mount Desert Island, Schoodic offers a similar feel with fewer fellow travelers. On the western edge of the Donnell Pond Public Reserved Land, a pocket of conservation totaling more than 14,000 acres, the mountain is accessible via a modest loop that includes a stop at a wonderful freshwater beach. The perfect destination for hikers of all ages, the top of Schoodic Mountain boasts one of Maine’s most spectacular ocean views."
