“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I've been to many National Parks and this one does not disappoint. Great roadways with area's to pull off the road to take pictures, trails marked perfectly and the views were great! It rained while we were there so I got to see all kinds of waterfalls. Don't miss any of the stops. They are all worth it!

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This was at the top of my bucket list and it was a well deserved 1st place! Beauty and majesty around every turn. Take at least one full day to enjoy the park - stop at every opportunity - all the views are amazing!

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

A great way to spend a few hours. The loop hits all the wonderful views and off season provides plenty of opportunities to stop, park and see the views.

“Incredible Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Park Loop Road takes you to all of the key sites in the park. You're going to see Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, Cadillac Mountain, everything that is great about the park. When we went, there weren't many folks in the park so it was easy to park. Based on conversations with people, if you are travelling in high season I'd highly recommend taking the free buses. Park Loop Road is a must do early in your trip to get you an idea of the park and what you want to really dive into later on.
