Stroll along a boardwalk through a beautiful White Birch forest!
This easy hike starts over a wooden foot bridge to the left of the Wild Gardens Of Acadia. Here you will take a right on the Jesup Path paralleling the gardens. You will soon cross the Hemlock Road which will be where you return. The path now becomes a boardwalk taking you along a boggy area of white birch. The boardwalk will end as the trail passes the Hemlock Road again. Here you will take a left and walk along a pedestrian only road through a forest of large hemlocks. This section is only 0.3 miles and you will soon return to the Jesup Path where you will take a right and return.
While in the area walk through the Gardens of Acadia and visit the Nature Center and Abbe Museum. These are all located in the same area.
Definitely a must do on your Acadia National Park trip.

Maine / Rapid River Parking
Getting to Rapid River can be a bit of a trek, as the 10 or so miles leading to it is a maze of logging roads and the cell service is spotty at best.

Maine / Precipice Trailhead
The Precipice Trail is one of the most well known trails in Acadia, probably for its difficulty and the fact that it is along the exposed edge of Champlain Mountain.
