Soak up the scenery and salty air on America’s most beautiful coastal walks.

PrecipiceTrail, Mount Desert Island, AcadiaNational Park, ME

12 of 11

The nearly 1,000 foot climb up the East face of Champlain Mountain packs big thrills into a short distance. The trail is mostly vertical, with boulders acting as your stairs and the occasional iron handhold to assist your climb. The payoff is in the scenery: endangered peregrine falcon nesting in the rock crevices, the Cranberry Islands, and glorious views over the Maine coast.

Challenge Level: Strenuous.

Essential Gear: Worried about getting lost on a challenging trail? This watch not only tells time and monitors a workout, it is GPS enabled to help map your way back to the beach. (Garmin; $349.)
