Hike with Views
Oct 2021
We hiked this trail as park of a bigger loop although you could also go up Gorham Mountain and back. I would recommend a loop--you can easily either connect this trail to the Beehive or Ocean Path

Large flat mountain top with great views in all directions
Oct 2021
We would suggest combining a hike up The Beehive (ladders), then over to Gorham Mountain, and Cadillac Cliffs Trail, then back up to your parking spot via the Ocean Trail. The views from the top of Gorham Mountain (525') are lovely. There is some rock/boulder scrambling, but overall the Gorham Trail is moderate.

A trail overlooking the sand beach
Oct 2021
We parked our car in sand beach, walked this trail from bowl trail, then ocean path to parking lot. The trail was not hard for me, there are several view points which overlooks the sand beach and beyond.

Nice hike
Sep 2021
We did this as a loop - we parked along the road, walked up Ocean Path to the trailhead, up over the mountain, down the Bowl trail back to the road, then walked the Ocean Path back to the car. It took less than two hours for 3.5 miles. It was a relatively easy hike, not too rocky or steep. There were great views off both sides of the mountain. There were a fair number of people hiking this. It was a nice hike.

Great trail in Acadia. My wife and I walked this down to Shore Path after walking up via the Bowl trail. It is a good way to see another part of Acadia.

Rewarding!

This was a lot harder than I expected at my ripe old age and not being a hiker! But so happy I did it. Very rewarding and a fun time to spend with the family that isn't doing the "usual"!!

Favorite hike
Jul 2021 • Family
This was our favorite hike during our Acadia vacation. The views just before the summit are exceptional, but keep going until you get to the summit sign. The parking lot is labeled Gorham Trail and is just past Thunder Hole. We arrived fairly early and had no problem finding parking.

Great views and fun trail!

This is a great trail with excellent views of Sand Beach. Rated moderate it was challenging in a fun way and clearly marked. We went very early in the morning and had the trail almost to ourselves. There is a summit sign, just keep going. This was a favorite hike and I’m 59 in good shape.

Solid Location, Moderate Hike
Jul 2021 • Solo
My suggestion for reaching Gorham Mountain Trail is to take the FREE Island Explorer to Sand Beach. From there, walk Ocean Path to reach Gorham Mtn Trail. If you take the Gorham Mtn Loop (to the parking lot/ bus stop) it will be about 3.5 miles and take 2-3 hours. This is a moderately challenging climb up but not at all scary or treacherous. The views are nice at the top. If you combine Gorham Mountain Trail with either Ocean Path or the Beehive, you will have a full day’s hike.

Rewarding views at the top of this summit
Jun 2021 • Friends
We started with Beehive at 7am and did Gorham Mountain Trail thereafter, followed by Ocean Path, Thunder Hole, Sand Beach and the full loop around Great Head Trail. The views on this particular trail were beautiful of the ocean. Oh my goodness, pinch me! We parked our rental car in the Sand Beach parking lot. Found restrooms throughout, good signage and all around really enjoyable with an early morning start. Gorham isn’t an easy trail, but reasonable for a family.
