This is a great way to see all the attractions of Acadia to determine where you want to come back too.

Our family traveled the loop and hiked the Cadillac North Ridge Trail for spectacular views. The park is breathtaking and the scenery is magnificent. This was a summer trip, so I can not imagine the splendor of this park in the fall time!

Have been making this drive and enjoying the views since 1969 - can't get enough of the dramatic Maine coast. Picnickng on the pink granite rocks is not to be missed, along Otter Cliffs.

First let's all thank the Rockefellers for this wonderful (and so many of our other) park. The loop is great for seeing the overview. But, be ready to drive it a lot - especially if you miss your turn! I loved that it was one way AND you can park in the right lane. So many times, wildlife and great views are not at the pullouts. Though you may want up keep that in mind when driving in the right lane. :)

We were there in early June before the high season, so the crowds were minimal and the shuttles were not running yet. I can not think if anything weirded out on by coming early.

The fee was on the upper end of the National park services fee range. However it's a major park, so that is to be expected. If you are like us and mainly vacation in the National Parks, then you MUST get the America the Beautiful pass ($80 and good for 1 year). If you are 62+, then I think you are CRAZY if you don't have the senior version ($10 and good for life - plus you get other discounts with it).
