Hello- I hope someone can give me some advice about an Oct. visit to Acadia. I want to catch peak leaf turning, yet if I
plan my trip for past Oct. 10th, I understand the Island Explorer shuttle will not be available, and whale watching cruises will be winding down. The folliage reports of the last
few years show peak from the 13th or later. I think I also
saw that the ranger-lead hikes in Acadia only go to Oct. 10th as well. Has anyone taken the ranger lead hikes? Some of the ones I have read about sound great.
The other thing I wondered about is the Island Explorer or a
shuttle back to the airport for my return flight. From what I read, it seems a little limited as far as having to leave early in
the day to be sure you get connected, as there are not as many
trips in October. Seems that a rental car may be the way to
go.......thanx for your advice!
