A 27-mile loop that explores the glacier-scoured mountains and rock-bound coast of Acadia National Park. This spectacular scenic drive explores Acadia National Park, New England’s jewel in the nation’s National Park system. Acadia, a place of matchless beauty and startling contrasts, is the most famous part of Maine’s ragged, 2,500-mile coastline. The superlative park, covering 38,523-acres on Mount Desert Island, is a natural crossroads where the forested mountains march down to the relentless sea. Cadillac Mountain, its high point, is also the highest point on the entire eastern seaboard and the place where the rising sun first gilds the United States. This guide is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
