Acadia National Park Guided Walk
First established in 1916, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. A 47,000-acre Atlantic coastline recreation area. The guided walk covers one-and-a-half to two miles of some of Acadia's most scenic spots. As you explore the breathtaking natural wonders around you, you'll learn about the Park's ecosystem and ornithology, its natural history, geology, local legends, and lore from your experienced naturalist guide. Don't forget your Binoculars, wear good walking shoes or boots and bring rain gear as this tour operates rain or shine.

What you will see along the way:
Discover the fascinating history of one of the most gorgeous islands in America. Learn about the birds, animals and plants that live on the Island. Much of the park's outstanding scenery is the result of glaciers carving through granite, forging mountains and creating valleys. Did you know that the last glacier retreated over 13,000 years ago leaving behind bald summits of most of the Park's 17 mountains and exposing the beautiful pink granite? Learn about the powerful glacial activity that gave the Maine coast its unique identity making Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park such a paradise.

Special Notes:

Depending on weather conditions, the hike covers 1.5 - 2 miles traveling at a moderate pace over well maintained trails. Tour may operate in reverse sequence. Wear comfortable walking shoes, dress in layers, and bring a wind/waterproof jacket.
