"Climb Gorham Mountain" Mount Desert Island Things to Do Tip by johncudw

Mount Desert Island Things to Do: 18 reviews and 20 photos


The mountain is near Sand Beach along Ocean Drive and is pink granite, 500 feet above
the sea. Not as difficult as Sargent Mtn or Cadillac, or Dorr, shorter.
Here is a photo of the view across Frenchman's Bay from the summit
Sand Beach can be seen on the left. Need to wear a good set of tough
walking shoes or light mountain boots that are tough for scrambling over rocks.

Address: off Ocean Drive
Directions: South of Bar Harbor within Acadia National Park

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
