Featuring one of the most scenic drives on the east coast, Acadia is one of the most visited National Parks in the United States. You'll first pass through the quaint town of Bar Harbor to view some of the charming Victorian Mansions built by America's rich and famous at the turn of the century. Entering the National Park, your journey along the 27-mile Park Loop Road will take you along the ocean's edge passing Sand Beach, Schooner Head Overlook, and the High Seas mansion built by a wealthy gentleman whose wife perished on the Titanic. Continue past Otter Cliffs and the Gulf of Maine with beautiful views of the offshore islands. Travel through pine forests and past the Jordon Pond House with a beautiful view of the Penobscot Mountains and Bubbles Hill. Keep your eyes open for bald eagles and white tail deer as you make your way around the Park Loop Road. Your tour culminates (weather permitting) with a photo stop atop the 1,530-foot (466 meters) Cadillac Mountain, offering a 360-degree panoramic view of granite cliffs, coastal mountains, forests, lakes, and valleys.
Note: At Cadillac Mountain, walking is at your discretion. Walking surfaces are paved and partially accessible by wheelchair, but there are some uneven, slippery-when-wet areas and some steps. If weather conditions dictate, Cadillac Mountain will be substituted with a stop at Jordan Pond or the Visitors Center. The order of the stops might be reversed to avoid congestion.
