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!
