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!

Visiting Acadia National Park was one of the highlights of my 5 weeks in NE USA and eastern Canada. 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

Spent the day driving around Acadia National Park. The views were great. Many places to stop for hikes or scenic overlooks.

Acadia national Park should not be missed. If you are not a hiker, you can still enjoy the park. There is a Loop Road, approximately 25 miles, which you can drive. There are plenty of pull offs, where you can experience wonderful vistas and overlooks. If you are a biker, this is a challenge of a ride. It is all... More

Park Loop Road does just that, all the way around the immediate parts of the park. Lovely roads with so many fall colors. We just loved the drive.

We spent a late afternoon and morning during the peak fall color season. We’d recommend the 15-minute orientation film at the visitor’s center that shows Acadia at its finest from sunrise to sunset. Weather wasn’t ideal for our drive half way up 1,500-foot Cadillac Mountain to see the sunrise (at 6:50) from the eastern edge of the US (a surprisingly... More

The road was in very good shape, and it was nice that it had many place to park along the road near attractions, as most of the parking lots were full.

I have been coming to Acadia for many years and still enjoy every visit. I call it my happy place, as it is where I can go to get back to nature and hike some beautiful trails. The loop road takes you past some beautiful scenery with lots of places to stop and see on the way or many places... More

its great that it is one way for most of park- along sea border until Jordan Park Restaurant. they allow parking on right side. Many places to stop and look at the fantastic views of coastal Maine. I very much enjoyed the route. Pay attention to little side trails. Don't be afraid to stop and get out of the car.... More
