We brought our lunch and ate at the top before going onto the Bowl Trail and Gorham Mountain and back on the trail that parallels the Park Loop Road and across the beach to the Great Head trail.
If you find yourself in the Bar Harbor area, or Acadia Park, I highly recommend that you visit and climb Champlain Mountain as well as Beehive Mountain.

You can park or take the free shuttle to Sand Beach and reach this by walking down the Ocean Path OR you can park or take the shuttle to Thunder Hole b/c the trailhead is right by Thunder Hole.
The Gorham Mountain Trail has been added to our list of our favorite activities in Acadia National Park.
Schoodic Peninsula Bar Harbor

Take the drive north and you'll be rewarded with an amazing loop road and vista's that are every bit as wonderful as the park proper.
Off Desert Island and north on Route 1, this addition to Acadia National Park is often missed but great to visit for the ocean views, waterfowl, and sea life.

Precipice Trail Acadia National Park
#8 of 104 Nature & Parks in DownEast and Acadia Maine
Reviews indicated the best route down would be via the Champlain Mountain North Ridge Trail (formerly Bear Brook Trail) which terminates on Park Loop Road just north of the Precipice Trailhead.
We did this on our first day in the park and have gotten to the champlain summit on other trails and the hike is worth the views its spectacular.

The ocean path trail starts at Sand Beach on Park Loop Road in Acadia and continues to Otter Cliff, passing by Thunder Hole and tons of little side trails to walk a few feet onto gorgeous cliffs, coves, pebble bea...

Highly recommend the hikes in this park along the shoreline; high cliffs, great views offshore, beautiful forest, well-maintained.
The state park offers trails, picnic tables, and the chance to see the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the easternmost lighthouse in the United States.
