The Beehive Trail is a thrilling 1.5 mile loop trail in Acadia National Park. The trail begins at the Beehive Trailhead which can be found across the street from the Sand Beach parking lot off Park Loop Road. Hiking the 1.5 mile loop trail takes about 2-4 hours due to the steep 450-foot elevation gain and multiple obstacles. Along the trail, hikers will find several handrails to navigate over exposed rocks, iron rungs to climb up, and granite steps. From the top of the trail, hikers are rewarded with spectacular views of Sand Beach, Great Head, and the surrounding area. To return back, hikers take the Bowl Trail which is a relatively easy trail compared to Beehive.
