We had visited Acadia NP during every season except winter and wanted to see the park with snow. It was truly magical! There is a National Park Service brochure, Winter in Acadia, that you can access online, showing how to access Park Loop Road, where restrooms are available, and rules for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, hiking, camping, and ice fishing....

Excellent ocean views, easy accessibility for those that drive their car, and great places to stop and rest and take in the beauty. The most gorgeous part of the drive is along the ocean between the beach and Otter Cliffs. The Jordan Pond House is a great place to stop after hiking, and Cadillac Mountain should be climbed afterwards to... More

You will be awed, refreshed, revived and "sold" if you choose this as one of the very first things you do upon your first visit to Mount Desert Island!

The Drive on the park loop road is very relaxing. We stopped at the beach and sat for a while. This is the only beach for miles and miles and is all crushed shells from the glacier period.

We enjoyed the many diverse sites that are accessible on the loop. From Cadillac Mountain to Sand Beach you get a broad spectrum of things to see and do.

I was driving so I couldn't do that much sightseeing but from what I saw, it was beautiful. Next time, I have somebody else do the driving so that I can enjoy the scenery. There are places to stop and enjoy the view though so you can take a break!

Really beautiful scenery of the majestic Maine coastline with its lush vegetation and thundering waves over the rocky coastline. Beautiful stone bridges and cottages, both shoreline and inland vistas and a sense of really communing with nature make this a fantastic... More
