“The Schoodic part of Acadia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Its much more beautiful, a rugged beauty, compared to the main Acadia Park. The rugged shore line and waves, the forests, the mountains, the harbour.. all made it special

“Great view for little effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Schoodic is the part of Acadia where few people venture which makes it so nice to walk or drive around. The hike up Schoodic is easy and short and has great views of the rocky coast and ocean. You are unlikely to see other people so it is very peaceful

“Good hike even in the rain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The trails were beautiful. However, the rain, wet leaves and moss made some parts a little more interesting than others.

“Great family hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just a short distance from the Bluff Huse Inn, You can picnic, hike or just bring a chair and enjoy the views from the Schoodic Point. Unbelievable crashing surf when the water is rough or a storm is blowing in. Great hiking trails that are even good for small children. Watch the children on the rocks, it is beautiful and exciting but be safe and stay clear of the water.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

A bit of a climb on rocky faces but worth the view. Best approached from either the new Downeast Sunrise Trail by bike or from the Donnell Pond beach side but the trail to the trailhead from this side is not bike friendly. DO NOT make the common mistake of taking the trail to Schoodic Nubble as you will have to backtrack to the main trail. CITGO station in Franklin (Franklin Trading Post) might have trail maps. The bike/hike in is a few miles to the trailhead. Hoping the old trail from the Downeast Sunrise Trail (old railbed) to the Schoodic Mtn trailhead can be opened up again now that the power line has provided some access - stay tuned! Easy to loose the trail down once you are on top so use your GPS or watch the cairns!
