ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine — Officials at Acadia National Park have reopened a popular hiking trail on Champlain Mountain three years after it was closed when it sustained earthquake damage.

The Orange and Black Path — formerly known as the East Face Trail — was closed after an earthquake rocked Bar Harbor and the nearby park in October 2006.

Acadia’s trail crew has completed rehabilitating sections of collapsed staircases and trails that were damaged by rock slides. The rugged cliff-side trail dates back to 1913.
