We were traveling south to Acadia, so Schoodic was on our way to Mt. Desert Island. We enjoyed the nice drive, though they could have had a few more scenic pullouts. We were expecting crashing waves on the rocks, but the ocean was quite calm on the afternoon we visited.

Maine shoreline - rocks and waves. What more can one ask for? This is a lovely stop in Acadia National Park.

This is not to be missed, the very tip has an amazing rock formation that you can climb on. There are tide pools with starfish and sea urchins, it's surreal and beautiful

The Schoodic Peninsula is about 1 1/2 hours from Mt. Dessert Island. You can get there by taking a water ferry or driving to it. The rock formations were very different on the peninsula and because it is not as popular as Acadia on Mt. Dessert Island, it was less crowded. We loved it!

I enjoy going to Schoodic because it's not as touristy as the other side of the Island. Don't get me wrong, I love the park loop and all that Mt Dessert Island has to offer. I just like to escape it sometimes and go climb on the rocks at Schoodic. Winter Harbor and Prospect Harbor are two very interesting towns.... More

This was well worth the drive! The views were beautiful, no crowds, and plenty of opportunities to stop and take walks or hikes.

Schoodic Peninsula is one of the most beautiful parks of the park! Because it if further away, not as many people make it over there, so it is also a great escape from the crowds. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful extension of Acadia National Park with a Loop Road. Some breathtaking views especially with incoming tide; excellent waves crashing into the rocks.
