Don't miss the drive up to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Great views all the way up and down, but the best is at the top. One can see for miles on a clear day as well as taking in the ocean and all of the little islands.

I had a really great time here. When I went to the visitor center there was a really nice man who told me about the Westface Trail. If you are here and you are looking to be adventerous and have fun while climbing, I suggest this trail. You climb 1,500 ft. in 0.9 miles. It is a lot of fun.... More

To go to the top of Cadillac Mountain and see the view is just breathtaking. You can see Bar Harbor below you and you can appreciate all the nature around us. Just amazing.

I'd heard the sunrise from Cadillac was worth seeing. I'd seen pictures...but now I've seen it for myself! Truly inspiring! Getting up at 4am to meet the sunrise at 4:58 was worth it!

This is a must see if you come to Acadia National Park. Once at the top, you have a short climb to have a wonderful view of the ocean and the rest of Mount Desert Island. Look for the 3 geodetic survey markers, which mark the highest point on the island. They are located just up from the ranger station/visitor... More

One of the most breathtaking sunrise you will see is from on top of this mountain. Of course, you have to get up around 4 to see it but it is more than worth it! We drove up when we saw the sunrise but we hiked up the mountain on another day and had lunch at the top overlooking the... More

Don't go if you're afraid of heights, but the views here are stunning!! You can walk out on the trails and get out on the giant rocks. The views of the ocean and harbor are stunning!!
