Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Acadia National Park/Park Loop Road
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, it is best showcased by Park Loop Road, a 27-mile stretch designated as one of America's most scenic byways. It ribbons past such highlights as Otter Cliff, historic Jordan Pond House, and Thunder Hole, where, if the tides are favorable, you will see the ocean spray shooting high into the air.
What you will see along the way:
Settle in for a picturesque drive through Bar Harbor and along the stunning coastline of Acadia, the first National Park east of the Mississippi. Take in sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests of spruce and pine, and mountain summits. Travel down the Park's 27-mile Park Loop Road past 407-foot high Kebo Mountain, cross Beaver Dam Pond and Sand Beach. Your journey then takes you along the Ocean's edge passing Sieur de Mont Springs, Schooner Head, Otter Cliffs and Thunder Hole, and Jordan Pond.

Special Notes:

There is no visit to Cadillac Mountain (travel loop road only), photo stops are made based on the parking availability along the Park Loop Road and may include Thunder Hole, Sieur de Mont Springs, Schooner Head, Otter Cliffs, or the Jordan Pond area.
