The ride around the Park Loop Road and Cadillac Mountain is one of my favorite road rides anywhere. There are beautiful views around every bend, and the one-way traffic around about half of the ride make it all the more enjoyable. There is a considerable abount of climbing on this ride, but it is short. We do this ride whenver we're in the area.
Great road ride with lots to see. A few tough climbs but worth the views. The best way to see Acadia is by bike. Every turn is a new view. Jordon Pond is a good place to stop for Lunch and rest by the pond and enjoy. The 2 lane one way road sections of the park provide safe and fun biking for the whole family. There is a biult-in sag too. There is a free bus system that goes to the major attractions in the park. The bus has a bike rack. NOT that we used it, it is an option for those who might get stranded or have mechanical problems or just have over done it for the day.
