Foursquare Tips

  • Hike to the top of Cadillac mountain early in the morning and watch the sun rise over the ocean. You'll also be the first in the nation to see the sun's rays.
  • The cover photo for our Spring 2012 Outdoor catalog was taken here.
  • Please don't smoke in the park. Seriously tacky.
  • bring a camera. just beautiful!
  • If you are going to hike one mountain, go for Beehive. It is one of the most unique hikes you will ever do and it is right next to Sand Beach
  • The most beautiful place in the USA.
  • popovers at jordan pond house are a must!
  • Start at the visitor's center and pick up a car pass for $20. For a challenging hike we did the bubble divide trail to Deer Brooke to the Penobscot summit which is almost 1200 ft high.
  • Jed Bartlet knows what's up...Acadia National Park is close to perfect...even for those of us who are more city than country mice! Don't miss lunch at the Jordan Pond House!
  • Take a dive along Loop Road, the open coast with amazing seascapes & climb to the top of Cadillac Mountain for the 360-degree view. Green Guide Editor
  • A gem! Great to explore on foot or bike (57 miles of carriage trails!) and plenty of guided tour options too! If you need a break, try a bus or trolley tour of the park. Hot? Take a dip at Sand Beach!
  • best place on Earth. must see: Park Loop Road, Jordan Pond House, and Seal Harbor Beach.
  • Watch out for bears and coyotes which are sighted on a semi-regular basis, while moose and bobcats are rare but occasional camp-mates.
  • Beautiful year-round, but especially magical in the Fall. Check out the views from Cadillac Mountain, wet your toes at Sand Beach, and breathe in that lovely fresh air!
  • Visit Thunder Hole.
  • Created in 1919, Acadia was Americas first national park east of the Mississippi River. John D. Rockefeller Jr. donated roughly one-third of the land protected here today. (From Aerial America)
  • Winter is beee-utiful in Acadia!
  • Sunset was beautiful. Definitely a must-see.
  • Get up early to climb to the top of Cadillac Mountain (its the first place the sun rises in the United States) and consider yourself a happy camper.
  • The hike up Penobscot mountain was the best hike I've ever done. Amazing exposed ridge line and 360 degree view.
