Park Loop Road
Twenty-seven miles long, this road is used to navigate through Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island by vehicle. Special observation points and parking spaces are reserved at Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, and Otter Cliff, so be sure to stop and take pictures.
A challenging trail with rewarding views of Sand Beach and Great Head, Beehive is an Acadia classic. Hand-bars and rails are strategically placed to help hikers over difficult spots. Wear sunscreen and be cautious on the cliffs.
Free of motor vehicles, the Carriage Roads were financed by John D. Rockefeller, and specially created for the use of bikers, horse riders, and horse-drawn carriages on Mount Desert Island. You can also park at Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond and set out for a nice walk.
Formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet in the last glacial period, Jordan Pond is renowned for its crystal-clear water. The pond is home to Atlantic salmon, rainbow smelt, three-spined stickleback, and pumpkinseed sunfish. Humans and pets are therefore not allowed to swim in the pond, but relaxing nearby is welcome, and there is a restaurant on-site.
