    Seems like this is a standout year for falls and accidents in Acadia Park.  Wonder why?

      The bushes fault.

      Inexperience combined with improper hiking gear are the biggest factors.

    technically one of the rescues on Champlain Mountain was not the Precipice Trail,  it was the nearby cliffs popular with rock climbers.

    People come here from away and Acadia park is like an amusement park to them, and most come UN-prepared to even walk  in the park, flip flops, sandals etc. Jut because you shopped at LL bean on the way up, doesn’t mean Mother nature won’t bit ya in the ass, Nature is a tough place, most of these people when they get away form their sidewalks and paved roads are in for trouble. Hope they are all OK.

    Some of the trails in Acadia are harder then the length of the trail might imply.

      If your implying hardness and length are sometimes misconstrued I wholehardedly agree.

  • Should be a law that any hikers over 60 should have to wear helmets.
