Acadia National Park
Located on the rugged coast of Maine, Acadia National Park encompasses over 47,000 acres of granite-domed mountains, woodlands, lakes and ponds, and ocean shoreline.
Acadia was the first national park established east of the Mississippi. There are over 120 miles of hiking trails in Acadia National Park.
Between 1915 and 1933 John D Rockefeller, Jr. financed the building of 57 miles of carriage roads. Vehicles are not allowed on these roads. They are enjoyed by hikers, bikers, joggers, carraiges, horseback riders, cross country skiers, showshoers, a few are open to snowmobiles.
Ocean drive is a 27 mile scenic drive through the park encompassing Sand Beach, Great Head, Thunder Hole, Otter Cliffs and ending at the Jordan Pond House. You can drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain where it is said you see the first rays of the sun in the continental United States. A great place to watch the sunrise or the sunset. It is the highest point on the North Atlantic seaboard at 1532 feet. There are seventeen mountains on Mount Desert Island.
