Acadia National Park is a utopia for all ages and levels of cyclists—largely due to the 45-mile network of crushed-rock carriage roads that are closed to motor vehicles. The park comprises most of Mount Desert Island in Maine and offers incredible panoramic views of the Atlantic Coast from the top of Cadillac Mountain.
Hiking in Acadia
The park is a day hiker’s paradise with some 125 miles of trails, from shoreline strolls to rocky, exposed ridge routes. Map of trails
Kayaking, Paddle Boarding and Sailing
There is plenty of quiet water paddling to be had on the many lovely lakes and ponds of the interior of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. From the seat of your canoe or kayak, enjoy wildlife sightings and views of spruce and pine-studded, pink granite mountains. Official boat launches are located at the north end Eagle Lake, the south end of Jordan Pond, the north and south shores of Long Pond, at Ike’s Landing on Echo Lake, and at Seal Cove Pond, but you can slide a canoe or kayak into numerous other ponds too.Take a refreshing plunge into the clean clear Echo Lake or Long Pond. You can relax in the sun on a beach at the lake’s southern end or on wide granite cliffs on the eastern shoreline.
