Foggy the day we were here, but that just added to the character of the place. Rock climbers were also busy while we were here. When driving in the area why wouldn’t you stop here to check out the views?

My wife and I didn't identify any otters on Otter Cliff in Maine's magnificent Acadia National Park. But, make no mistake, it is described as one of the most spectacular sights along the North Atlantic coast--and who would argue the point? Located on the East...More

This is a great place to have mostly to yourself and to rock hop or climb. Our 15 year old really enjoyed this!

Otter Cliff has beautiful views! We were climbing all over the rocks. It is very populated with tourists, but worth the time.
