You’ll Never Forget A Hike Through These Maine Caves
There’s no doubt about it: Maine is a hiker’s paradise. And while many of the most famous trails in Maine are quite difficult, there are some pretty incredible hikes perfect for those of all skill levels — especially in Maine’s only national park, Acadia. There’s little better than a day spent hiking in Acadia, but with more than 120 miles of terrific trails, it can be hard to choose just one. Featuring jaw-dropping coastal views, lush foliage, and incredible rock and cave formations, the Gorham Mountain Trail absolutely deserves a spot on your Maine hiking bucket list. Let’s take a look, shall we?
