This National Park is absolutely breathtaking. We drove the loop on our visit to the park. There are lots of pull off areas and parking lots around the park. We made stops at Sand beach, Bubble Pond, Jordan Pond, Thunder Hole, and Cadillac Mnt. There is much more to do, but we only had half a day. There is something here for everyone. We can not wait to go back when we have more time to spend there.

Thunder Hole at 3/4 incoming tide. Otter Cliffs as the tide is going out. Jordan Pond Nature Trail around the pond. Sand Beach anytime. Otter Cliffs rock climbing. Kayaking Eagle Lake. Driving to the summit of Mt Cadillac to view the islands, Bar Harbor, Otter Point and cruise ships. Walking the two mile trail between Otter Point and Thunder Hole. These and many other adventures await you as you traverse the park loop road. If you do it in an hour you missed 90% of what this incredible drive has to offer. Seniors use your Golden Pass and return again and again.

Worth use 1 hour of your life driving slow by this road and checking every point where you can stop and see how beautiful is all around ….
One will not get tired of that view and will not ever forget it.

We enjoyed Acadia last week, in May 2014. We drove on the scenic loop, and up the Cadillac mountain. It was lovely, Sometimes I felt it was not rugged enough since it was almost post card pretty. I enjoyed the Schoodic Peninsula of the Acadia park better.

Such versatility in just a 27 mile driving loop! From the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the point where sunlight first hits the United States, to the breathtaking sights of Thunder Hole. From your own private piece of paradise called Sandy Beach to the rock formations of Otter Cliff..... You can experience all of it and much more as you drive down winding roads and lush forests of the Acadia Park Loop. Grab a picnic before heading up and relax as you take in the majestic sights. We even saw deer roaming the edges of the road....
