Easy access to trails to get closer to the water. Well maintained roads. Great views from the road itself.

This is a spectacular loop. Go as early as you can. Drive around the entire loop once. Then go again stopping and walking the various points. The views are spectacular.

The Acadia Park Loop is an awesome drive! We spent about four hours driving around the area and stopping to take a short hike or look at something. Then we went back a second day for about the same amount of time to finish it. It was well worth the drive! So much to see and do!

Wow! Is what I said several times. The sites of rocks and water and the mountains were amazing. Not really good for anyone with breathing problems.

I expected better. Half of the drive is nothing to look at while the other half has beautiful scenic views. We opted to do the trail from Sand Beach to Otter Cliffs and up Gorham Mountain to get the best views. The road is sort of confusing when looking at a map because there are a lot of spots that...

This National Park is a must see if you are visiting the state of Maine! I almost missed the very best part of the park because I was enjoying the rest so much! Please do the Red Line Loop drive around the park! You will get a "bird's eye" view of the park's beauty! You need more than one day... More

I have been to the area many many times and each time I see things different. No matter what the weather or time of year, the Ocean Drive Park Road is amazing with it's beauty. Take time to walk the trails or just sit on the rocks and take in the beauty.
