I'm disappointed that we did not head back up to Cadillac Mountain to see the sunset but what we saw was beautiful and breathtaking!

“Ten minutes into your hike the crowds are gone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great hike. Lots of "bang for the buck" with a fairly easy hike with great views. Have done this hike in high season when it's body to body in any of the MDI towns. Ten minutes up and suddenly nobody's there. Apparently most of the hoards of tourists are not interested in hiking.

“Awesome views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Reached from the great auto road in Acadia National Park - this is the premier view in the park. Hike the peak trail, enjoy a picnic lunch, and shop for souvenirs at the well stocked gift shop. The bathrooms at the gift shop are nice as well! A must see when in the Bar Harbor area.

“Impressive even in the rain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Cloudy, windy and cold but still impressive. Summit store clerks friendly and clever. When asked if there were moose in the park the response "yes but you would have a better chance of seeing one than you would finding one in the front seat of your car". Still laughing and will never forget the response.

“What a view !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had a lovely drive through the park and up the mountain. The views were breathtaking !!!.

There was a reasonably priced gift shop as well as very clean restrooms.
