America’s national parks are full of long, difficult routes to spectacular locations. Equally impressive are our park’s many nature trails—trails that showcase the flora and fauna preserved by those who have gone before us for the betterment of the countless generations that follow. The Ship Harbor Trail in Acadia is one such place where Mount Desert Island’s rugged coastline, thick evergreen forests, and sea life stand on display accessible to the vast majority of park visitors. Visit Ship Harbor throughout the year, witness the changing tides, marvel at the rising and setting sun, and take in the abundant beauty of Maine’s unique coast.
