Acadia National Park
More about us...
Located on Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park is one of Maine’s highlights and a paradise for outdoor sports and nature lovers. Explore miles and miles of trails for biking or walking, and stunning peaks to climb. The park is home to many plants and animals, lush forest, quiet ponds and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast.
The Park maintains more than 120 mi of hiking paths, from easy strolls around lakes and ponds – don’t miss the Jordan Pond Nature Trail – to challenging treks with climbs up rock faces and scrambles along cliffs. It is also famous for its 45 miles of scenic carriage trails, built at the beginning of the 20th century by John D. Rockefeller Jr. Open only to hikers, bikers, horse riders and carriage drivers, the carriage roads feature several beautiful granite stone bridges to cross and spectacular vistas.
Trail guides and maps can be found in some area bookstores and inside the park, at Hulls Cove Visitor Center, just off Route 3, right after the Hulls Cove inlet.
