Acadia National Park
Comprised of a cluster of islands on the rugged Maine coast, Acadia National Park encompasses over 47,000 acres of granite-domed mountains, woodlands, lakes, ponds, and ocean shoreline. Steep slopes rise above the rocky shore, including Cadillac Mountain, which at 1,530 feet is the highest point on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Such diverse habitats create striking scenery and make the park a haven for wildlife and plants.
More than 140 miles of hiking trails and 45 miles of historic carriage roads lead visitors to stone-faced bridges, waterfalls, cliffs and scenic vistas and help share the rich human history of the region that includes Native Americans, European settlers, artists, conservationists, and more.
