This is the quiet side of Bar Harbor. A good place to go and relax with a book and enjoy the sunshine.

Climbed to the top of the point for views of Bar Harbor and the bay between. Great ocean view too. Lots of interesting plants along the way.

Schoodic Point is simply stunning. Worth the drive from Mt Desert or from Ellsworth to see all the beauty without large crowds.

We visited in late October and decided to make the drive from Bar Harbor to Schoodic Point bc we had heard it was less crowded. We thoroughly enjoyed it! It almost felt like we had the place to ourselves. In addition to spending time on the rocky shore, we hiked one of the trails.

I liked the rocks and the trail is not that hard. It gives you a nice view of the ocean and on a clear day sunset is great

We were directed here as a less busy part of Acadia NP and found a very pleasant drive with multiple stops for scenic photos. Great little side trip.

Some of my best photos are from this area. Schoodic Peninula is a lesser traveled part of Acadia National Park. Equally as beautiful. This point had lots of crashing waves and lots of birds to take photos of.

There is nothing to dislike. View is breathtaking. It is a must place to take your visitors as the views are just beautiful.

This is the quieter side of Acadia, but with the same beautiful coastal views. A six mile loop with plenty of places to pull off and take pics or hike about.
