Hike the Jesup Path & Hemlock Road Loop

0.8 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

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.
