ONE-WAY HIKES FOR THE SERIOUS HIKER
Hike across the Island's mountains without turning back to your car. Here are a few sample hiking expeditions:
Hike from Sieur de Monts (Bus 3 or 4) to the Jordan Pond House (Bus 4 or 5) via the Cannon Brook Trail. BUS 3 WILL NOT OPERATE IN 2021.
Hike from Brown Mountain Gate House (Bus 6) over Sargent Mountain to Jordan Pond House (Bus 4 or 5). BUS 6 IS NOT AVAILABLE IN 2021.
Hike the full length of Cadillac Mountain from the North Ridge trail head (Bus 4 or 5) to Blackwoods Campground (Bus 10). BUS 10 WILL NOT OPERATE IN 2021. There is an access trail to the Park Loop Road (where you can catch Bus 4) at the far end of Blackwoods Campground. Ask a campground Ranger for directions.
Head from Sieur de Monts (Bus 3, 4, or 10) across Champlain Mountain to Sand Beach (Bus 3 or 4). BUSES 3 AND 10 WILL NOT OPERATE IN 2021.
These are steep and strenuous trails. Take a map, trail guide, and plenty of water. Do not underestimate the time required. Start early so you don't miss the last return bus at the end of your hike.
