Cadillac South Ridge Trail

Cadillac South Ridge Trail

Sure, you can drive up Cadillac Mountain, the tallest peak on the Atlantic coast and the first spot to see the sun rise on the U.S. But why do that when this moderately challenging, 3.5-mile path weaves through the woods, then ascends to open rocky ledges leading to the summit? Start at Blackwoods Campground (or pitch your tent there and have s’mores supplies waiting for your return).
