We rode our bikes along schoodic point, and it was a beautiful and quiet ride in nature. It is a nice combination of ocean, woods, and ponds.

A very quiet portion of Maine that takes in the lesser known portion of Acadia Nat'l Park. The scenery here is terrific and it is very quiet. Bring a camp chair, snacks and sun tan lotion to enjoy the serenity of the area.

Drive the loop for some outstanding views of the water and shore, along with many lobster boats. Easy to get to and several pulloffs for great pictures.

We went here on our last trip as we stayed in winter harbor. It was my favorite part in both trips to Maine. It's quieter, less hustle and bustle. We had a lot of fun trolling the rocks. When the tide came in we were...More
