Great views

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.

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.
