Just echoing what Andy said . . . Boot Head Cache is one of those "must do" caches that everyone should make a point to find . . . just make sure to take the extra few minutes to do the entire loop and see the vistas.

On May 31st and June 1st I did 30 caches. Almost all of them brought me to some fantastic places with incredible scenery and awe-inspiring views . . . but this place was the best of the best. Thank you for bringing me here since I never would have ever been here if it wasn't for geocaching . . . this place rivals and surpasses Acadia National Park's trails.
4:12 p.m. My younger brother and I took the obvious trail in to the cache and found it relatively quickly. The trail we took in reminded me a lot of a hike I did near Portage, Alaska which receives as much precipitation as most rain forests and as a result it has trees covered in various types of moss -- very much like this trail to Boot Cove.
Boot Cove was a pretty nice looking beach . . . but A SPECIAL NOTE TO FUTURE GEOCACHERS take the time to do the longer route that skirts the ocean as it is worth the trip. If you geocache stricly for the numbers then by all means take the shortest route back, but if you want to see some incredible views take the longer trail.
This was without a doubt the best hike of the day with some of the best views of the rugged Maine coast I have ever seen in my entire life. Deep rocky ravines and cliffs, deep green water . . . and even a blowhole at the platform similar to Thunder Hole in Acadia (and we just happened to time it right by accident so that it was blowing out while we took a break -- in some ways it was even more impressive than Thunder Hole.)
