One of the best places on the east coast to view a sunset or sunrise. Beautiful in the summer, and fall. Bring bug spray though.

A few day earlier we had gone Acadia National Park on Mount Desert and enjoyed it very much so when a native Downeaster recommended the Schoodic Mountain part of the Acadia National Park we were ready to go. Absolutely beautiful.

In my opinion, this is the better part of Acadia National Park- no crowds, a plethora of rocky beaches to walk on, and the best part-easy and safe bike riding. You don't have to compete with a car logged road- with the one way roads the bikes practically have their own lane to ride in.

Shoodic park is a nice relaxing tour of the Maine shoreline. You can pack a lunch and make a day of watching the breakers on the rocks.

I took my boys up schoodic mountain for the first time. I've been up it many times and couldn't wait. They enjoyed "real hiking". Once we got to the top the ooohs and awes were non stop. They can't wait to climb it again. The views are worth the effort.

All the other reviews have been by summer visitors, but I live here year round. The fire road that others have mentioned is closed to vehicles in winter, but it is open for hikers and snowshoers. It's a roughly two mile 'shoe, up and down the 440 foot elevation change. It can be a challenge...I'm 67...but I like to make... More

Nice easy, less than 10 minute jaunt to the top that you can even do at a trot (and I am 62). Good views. Not spectacular given that it isn't very high but rewarding nonetheless. You might as well do it while you are on the 1-way loop within Acadia National Park -- Schoodic Peninsula.
