A family favorite! Great views from the summit and a built-in loop with the optional Cadillac Cliffs side trail. Small section with iron ladder but overall non-technical.

Gorham Mt has it's own parking lot. You can get to it from the park loop road - past Sand Beach. Look for it on the right. Enjoy!!
