This one-way road along the rugged shore of Mount Desert Island offers dramatic views of the rock-bound coast and the sea beyond. It is fun to pull into the parking lane and walk out on the ledges overlooking the ocean and watch the lobsterfolk at work, the gulls circling and crying, the waves crashing on the shore and the tour boats and pleasure craft cruising by. Behind the shore rises Gorham Mountain, excellent for hiking on a well-marked trail. Near the beginning of the loop road is a beaver pond. Further along is a lovely sand beach with good access, changing rooms and toilets. The loop road ends near the famous Jordan Pond House where one should stop for tea and popovers in mid-afternoon.
