Acadia is an amazing national park. The internal/mountain trails are nice, challenging and offer some amazing views, and the coast is just stunning..

Acadia is wonderful and Bar Harbor is worth a visit, just not when the cruises arrive. The crowds detract from a wonderful seaside village and the park is great for driving or hiking. Stop, take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

This is an amazing park! The views are spectacular and there is just no better way to see Bar Harbor than from the top of Cadillac Mountain. Just beautiful - especially in the Fall.

We enjoyed getting to see the Park in the fall. Everything was very well maintained. The park was full and parking was limited in some places.
