Champlain North Ridge Trail is an easy hiking trail in Acadia National Park that leads to wonderful views of Frenchman Bay. The trailhead is located at the Bear Brook Parking Area, which is just past the picnic area near Beaver Dam Pond. Nearly 340 different bird species have been recorded in Acadia National Park, including twenty-three different species of warblers that breed in the park. The incredible diversity makes Acadia one of the premier bird-watching destinations in the country. Hikers that watch and listen along the trail will likely spot quite a few. Acadia has five campgrounds.
