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.

Such a most beautiful find while traveling to Maine. Will definitely go back someday as the natural beauty of the national park was a pleasant surprise. Beautiful. Serene. Welcoming. Easily Accessible. Fun. A must see in a lifetime.

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.

I don't think Acadia needs to be reviewed. Just look up pictures. Check it out. There's a scenic drive that's very cool with places to stop and take pictures. The big standout is, of course, Cadillac Mountain which has beautiful views. We went up at sunrise and it was incredible. We went to the summit multiple times and it was amazing each time.

Great place to visit. Truly one of the finest parks on the eastern side of the United States. Easy to get around and plenty of things to do see just outside the park as well. Cadillac Mountain is an unbelievable view. The hikes are nice and clean. Parking can be a little difficult on busy days, but all in all a great family outing.

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!
