Schoodic Woods Campground Walkway Professional Reviews and Guides

"A quick glance at any map will show that Schoodic Point extends a far distance out into the ocean. That happy occurrence, of course, is what draws the great variety of birds here. Waterfowl, gulls, and a variety of seabirds attract birders to this pristine location. Look for Surf, White-winged, and Black Scoter.

Common Eider are present, and King Eider are a possibility. Watch the rocks along water’s edge for Purple Sandpiper. Harlequin Duck, and Barrow’s Goldeneye are present, too. And always there is a chance that a Bald Eagle will pass by, lending a finishing touch to your day of birding."

"This is an easy ramble in one of the lesser known sections of Acadia National Park. It’s a good choice for riders looking to escape crowds and traffic during the busy summer season on neighboring Mount Desert Island. To most of the two million annual visitors to Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula is the land you see across Frenchman Bay as you stand at a Park Road overlook on Mount Desert Island.

Few people realize that the Schoodic Peninsula is also part of the national park — in fact, it’s the only part that isn’t on an island. Views of rocky headlands, Frenchman Bay, and the general natural beauty of the downeast coast are pretty much the same on Schoodic as on Mount Desert Island. The crowds are the missing element. This short ride could be done very quickly, or better yet, you could bring a picnic for a stop at Schoodic Point. As with all coastal cycling, be prepared for fog that rolls in fast."
