While Cadillac Mountain is popular for sunrise spectating, we visited at sunset and the views were fantastic. Just down from Cadillac Mountain is Blue Hill, which faces west. The drive up was very easy and mostly flat. After the sun went down, you can stay to view the stars.

This mountain provides plenty of hiking opportunities. The trails are generally well marked and easy to navigate. Good idea to get away from the parking area to feel more "part of nature". Also, you will have a chance to find wild Maine blueberries. Very tasty!

Quick drive to the summit and well worth it. Once you're at the top there are some trails to hike that offer great views. You can also stop many places along the way up that offer great views. This can also get crowded so go early.
