Sunrise Coast Scenic Drive Professional Review and Guide

"A 134-mile drive along the rocky northern coastline of Maine from Ellsworth to West Quoddy Head, the easternmost point in the United States. The 134-mile Sunrise Coast Scenic Drive follows Maine’s panoramic northeast coast from Ellsworth to West Quoddy Head, the easternmost point in the United States. This coastal rim, one of the first places the morning sun strikes the country, is a landscape of stunning beauty defined by rocks. The granite bedrock here—scraped, gouged, and polished by great ice sheets—meets the restless ocean at a spectacular boundary between rock and water.

Special attractions: Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point, the Great Heath, Burnham Tavern Museum, Great Wass Island, Bold Coast, Quoddy Head State Park, Quoddy Head Lighthouse, Cobscook Bay State Park, Reversing Falls State Park, Roosevelt Campobello International Park, camping, hiking, nature study, birding, scenic viewpoints, blueberry picking, and clamming. This eTrail 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."
