Schoodic Point and the surrounds in Acadia National Park is a wonderful place for a picnic, hike, bike trip, dog walk and general outdoor enjoyment. The Park center has a lovely new building with the usual knowledgeable and helpful park rangers. Highly recommend!

Breathtaking views of great slabs of rock, beautiful ocean views, and sweet pines! A must-see! The road travels the scenic water and forest to an amazing shore point.

Watch the waves crash as the tide comes in. Breathtaking any time. Quintessential Maine. Worth the drive from Bar Harbor.
