The Dorr Mountain Ladder Trail Will Show You A Completely New Side Of Maine

Maine is a haven for hiking enthusiasts, we all know that. With its soaring mountains, stunning water views, and thick, vibrant forests, Maine is a state best known for its nature. Of course, this means most of the best paths in Maine are well-known now — but we know one that’s a little less popular but no less amazing, perfect for those who want something more solitary and unique.

Try the Dorr Mountain Ladder Trail at Dorr Mountain in Arcadia National Park. It’s rated “difficult” on AllTrails, but ascending up the mountain is worth it. Not only do you get beautiful views up on top, but the entire hike has nature views that will make you actually grateful you need to pause and catch your breath anyway.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Just remember, there is a fee to get into Arcadia National Park: It’s $30 per vehicle or $15 per person if you’re on foot. You can also purchase a park-specific annual pass for $55. And no dogs, sorry — you will have to leave your four-legged friends back at home.
