Acadia remains one of the most popular parks in the country, receiving more than 2 million visitors every year. Established in 1916 it holds the distinction of being the first national park created from land donated entirely by private citizens.
This spellbinding preserve offers a combination of spruce-fir forests, rocky shores and placid bays with intriguing little islands. Because the summits are so open hikers are quickly surrounded by spectacular views. The part most often visited is on Mount Desert Island, surrounding Bar Harbor. The prime sightseeing route is the 27 mile Park Loop Road, which provides great views of Frenchman Bay and runs past key points of interest. The road is open mid-April to early December.
