Dorr Mountain, Acadia National Park

Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
The narrow ridge of Dorr Mountain features four hiking trails offering scenic views of the surroundings. All routes pass through wooded areas, with some sections running along streams and across valleys, and others dropping over boulders and big rocks. Occasionally, you will have to walk on wooden planks placed across beaver ponds. Once you reach the summit at 365 m (1,270 ft) above sea level, take in the panoramic view of the ocean and offshore islands. The most interesting and challenging trail works its way up a steep ascent made easier by some granite and iron steps.

  • Dorr Mountain is often overlooked because of its proximity to Cadillac. And it's quite undeserved - the views it offers are breathtaking: Bar Harbor, its islands and the town. No crowds at all. And you can still get to Cadillac from there. Just keep in mind the ravine between the two - you'll have to descend about 200 ft from Dorr, then climb 400 ft to the top of Cadillac.
  • I loved the mountain, while I was walking up I pooped on my son and made memories
