Looking for true Maine beauty away from the crowds of Mount Desert Island? GO TO SCHOODIC POINT! you will not regret the drive. Once you get off the highway you will drive through charming roads, it's just beautiful out there. We had to stop and get out of the car a few times to get some pictures on our way.... More

If you travel east from Ellsworth you will see signs for Acadia National Park and Schoodic Point. It is a lesser-visited part of the park, I'm sure because it is out of the way, but it is worth every minute to go there. Beautiful views of mountains and open sea with waves crashing on the shore. And NO crowds!

My wife and I were in Bar Harbor for a week and decided to drive to Schoodic Point. It was an hour drive. Amazing big rocks. Great photo opportunity.

I like to tell people about this place who aren't interested in the "touristy" spots. Bring your camera and get ready to say "Oh wow!" a lot! There isn't anything but beauty out there.

This was great! Hardly anyone was here. The water spraying up was unbelievable and sent our 2 teenage nieces into giggles and shrieks of laughter. It was the most fun for free. It was 20 degrees cooler here than when we started out so we were glad we had our hoodies in the back of the car.

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
