Cliff Trail - And we're off to the Cliff Trail.....
Cliff Trail - One last cove before we turn inland.
Cliff Trail - It was explosions galore, with waves breaking over all those rocks in addition to slapping the cliffs.
Cliff Trail - You sweep past several pretty coves hiking the Cliff Trail.
Cliff Trail - Until next time...
Cliff Trail - C*R*A*S*H
Cliff Trail - There is a wee bit of forest trekking along the Cliff Trail, but as always in Acadia NP, superior trail maintenance!

Another trail reinforcing the need to “look back from whence you came”. I initially thought this path would run along the high rises of Isle au Haut’s eastern shore, but was surprised that it appeared to wind completely along the rocky coast. The trail is less than a mile long and having walked a bit it seemed I would endure at sea level. Then I looked over my shoulder.

Behind me were magnificent vistas. Granite faces being constantly battered by the pounding surf. The cliffs are beautiful in and of themselves, but anticipating misty explosions from incoming waves is beyond compare. I was patient and smiled through about fifteen mighty bursts of water before hitting the trail again. Of course now I stopped every so often to revisit the wondrous scene at my back.

The trail finally hooks back in through the woods, quickly reaching the end point of Western Head Road (really a grassy trail, though there were grooved tire ruts). Follow this for a short bit to reach the start of the Goat Trail. Unfortunately I did not take that path, though it is supposed to wind past a beautiful inlet called Squeaker Cover. Next time.
