Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor

The Beehive in Acadia National Park, Maine

The Beehive in Acadia National Park juts out of the terrain proudly at 520 feet (158 m). If you have ever visited Sand Beach, you likely noticed it to the northwest, towering over the tree tops. You would have driven by it on the right just before arriving at the Sand Beach parking area. Even without binoculars, you will often see hikers trekking up the southeastern face. The trail is designated as strenuous as it has steep grades and many steady climbs. (See Acadia Hiking Trails & Walking Paths) The trail entrance is between the Entrance Fee Station on the Park Loop Road and Sand Beach, on the eastern shore of Mount Desert Island.

The first picture of the mountain you see at the top of this page shows a perspective that many do not get to see. they surely can, but it is at the far end of the beach. I love it early in the morning just as the sun peeks over the hill on the right which is part of Great Head.
