Abstract

Brief description of the Precipice Trail, a challenging hiking trail on the eastern face of Champlain Mountain, a 1,058-foot peak in Acadia National Park. Despite the fact the trail requires the use of iron rungs and ladders to negotiate the sheer vertical cliff, the walkway is one of the more popular climbs in the park. The Precipice was built more than seventy-five years ago, by Rudolph Brunnow, under the auspices of the Bar Harbor Village Improvement Association.
