Locally known as Eagles Crag, Clifton Crag, or Eagles Bluff this area is on route 180 in Clifton, a short drive from Bangor via route 9 and a short drive from Ellsworth on 180. From Rt 9 it’s approximately 2.5 miles on the left and is unmarked – there are often cars parked on the side of the road and there is a small road that goes a short distance into the woods there as well. If you pass the Springy Pond Road on your right you’ve gone too far. There are a couple of trails that lead up to the crag, some well marked and some not so well marked. It’s short hike to the top, taking only about 20 minutes or so – the crag itself is wildly popular with rock climbers, with some of the routes listed here. For those of us who want to get to the top a little easier, once you get to the base of the crag the trail goes to the left and winds around to the back side where it is a steep but short hike to the top. The view is spectacular for a relatively easy and short hike.
