The Precipice Trail Is A Challenging Hike In Maine That Will Make Your Stomach Drop

We love the trails that take us through the Maine woods on leisurely strolls with fresh air. And though we’ll always enjoy them, every so often you want to tackle something a bit more challenging. When that happens there are a few ways to break a sweat, but one of the most impressive hikes in the state is in Acadia National Park and you’ll want to prepare for this one!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
