We stopped to take some photos and were there on a beautiful day that didn't disappoint. Acadia is a great place to drive through and stop and take pics. I'm sure the hiking is great, too!

This is a nice spot for food, souvenirs and a bathroom break. There are many bike riders who stop here and they are friendly and knowledgeable about Arcadia Park. Get some photos of the mountains and have a bite to eat.

just a heads up - binoculars will be confiscated if they are deemed too powerful! the definition we got was " if the binoculars can see more than 500 m, they are too powerful " how you measure that is beyond me.

Just take the time to visit Jordan Pond. A very easy trail to walk. Beautiful sights to see and don't forget the restaurant. Get the popovers and they have great coffee. The food was very good and the staff very helpful.
