Acadia National Park

20 McFarland Hill Drive

People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.

Great place for family and friends. Very accessible for elderly Mobile people. So much to see so little time. If you want a fishing experience try Acadia deep sea fishing out of southeast harbor. Barbara the deck hand is great and very knowledgeable. Enjoy your catch and lobster if they catch enough everyone gets one of the legal keepers.

Great park! It's definitely worth the trip. You could easily spend a week and not see everything, but you'll have time for the main attractions. I definitely recommend a bike ride on the carriage roads, but be aware that there are some decent hills. If you're in good riding shape, the Around Mountain path has beautiful views. Cadillac Mountain for sunrise was worth it, too, but be aware that it's cold, even in July. We saw a lot of people under dressed and uncomfortable. Great Head and Gorham Mountain were nice hikes. Precipice was closed while we were there, unfortunately. Jordan Pond was beautiful, and I highly recommend the view from South Bubble. The north side hike for South Bubble, but the south face trail was much harder. It was a fun hike, but if you aren't a good hiker, I recommend the north side trail only. Enjoy your time here. It's beautiful!

The most beautiful mountainous parks. Jordan Pond a very beautiful walk around the water table. Crystal clear and a fun and sometimes challenging walk. Sand beach, gorgeous beach to swim in, the bluffs are outstanding. Cadillac Mountain sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking but be early both are very crowded. It also fantastic views and trails.

The best park in North east. Period. I was bit skeptical before driving this to park from NY because of it's size w.r.t sheer land size. If I'm not wrong it is the smallest national park in US. However, after reaching Bar Harbor, I was surprised by it's unique and vast vistas. We went in the peak period where it's very tough to find a parking spot in designated spots. Sand beach is perfect spot to unwind for couple of hours. The thunder hole and rocky coast are specialties of this park which I haven't found anywhere in NE. We did Beehive trail and it's not a dangerous hike as known. Of course, no Acadia trip is complete without watching sunrise at Cadillac mountain. Be sure to reach by 4 A.M if you want to park. The vistas and color is unmatched on top of Cadillac. The views of Acadia from top of beehive is simply breathtaking. We saw couple of whales too from top. It's one of the gem and no one shouldn't miss if you are in north east.

Heaven!!! Beautiful island with astounding views of the rugged coastline as well as lakes. Beautiful restaurant inside the park that you should try for classic Maine cuisine. Beautiful hiking paths for all ages and levels. Lovely loop road and there is endless wonder here. You need a lot of time to enjoy this whole park the carriage roads, coastlines and the beaches. We drove up the Cadillac mountain for the sunrise at 3:30 AM in July. The sky became so bright at 4 AM and the sun rose at 4:45 AM. Nothing can beat the views of the sunrise.
