Looking down the Cadillac North Ridge Trail
Route: Cadillac North Ridge Trail
Trail was mostly dry. A bit more rugged than I would have expected, considering the popularity of the mountain (compared to the rock paved Gorge Path below it). Lots of nice open views on the upper half of the trail, though the nearby auto road doesn't allow for much of a natural feel (plenty of other peaks in the park to go to to get away from the road). Very nice sunset from the northern ledges.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 233 west of Bar Harbor, take Park Loop Road south toward Cadillac Mountain. Take a left onto the one-way-traffic segment toward Sand Beach. The Cadillac North Ridge Trail trailhead will be on the right shortly thereafter, with limited room to park roadside on the left. By getting off at the subsequent Route 3 exit, one can avoid going through the park tollbooth.
