A challenging (at least for a pair of 75 year olds) hike, rocky and steep in places. Lots of mosses and lichens. Because it is heavily forested it was comfortable on a warm day... read more

Great hike and pristine swimming location at Schoodic Beach. Hike to the summit first, then down to the beach. Hike is very safe. View is great

This was a great hike for getting a great 360 view of the entire region. The trail can be done as a 2.8 mile loop with a rewarding, clear lake near the end. The peak is just over 1,000 feet and there is a lot of uphill climbing. Rocks and tree roots provide pretty good traction and steps along the... More

This is a pretty good vantage point of the ocean and mt desert island, Cadillac mountain. The road goes directly to the top, which is nice for folks of all ages and medical conditions. Have not visited this spot for sunrise or sunset, I'm sure it would look very good. Also that is made easier by having a campground on... More

Schoodic mountain was a great place with great views! The park was easy to access and it was nice, because in wasn't really busy like the bar harbor side.

Enjoyed some amazing views ... it was rainy & foggy, but they made some amazing (and different) views! Had a couple of days of rain - but still plenty of stuff to enjoy (rode around some & enjoyed some short hikes). The Park Rangers were very helpful in the Park questions; and they let us hang inside the Ranger Station... More

Fresh air, beautiful wildlife and a great road all around the peninsula. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. Definitely worth the trip

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.
