    We just went for a short hike in the woods and I must say that they are very nice and clean paths. From the reviews and the what was around us, it appears that this could be either a quick hike or a v...  more »

    Rocky trails can be steep in spots but the hike is doable. Hiked with my 2 teen boys. There is a fire tower at the summit that affords even better coastal views. Many scenic places to rest or have a p...  more »

    This is a fairly easy trail to take with the family. Our recommendation is to park at the North Parking Lot and take the .4 mi trail to the tower and take the .7 mi trail back to the parking area. The...  more »

Where to stay in Acadia National Park

A few campgrounds sit inside the boundaries of Acadia National Park. Camping is available in the park throughout the year, but most campgrounds are only open during summer. There are plenty of campgrounds around Mt. Desert Island, on which Acadia sits, and more located on the mainland within easy driving distance of the bridge to the island. For creature comforts, a lively atmosphere, and easy access to the park, look for a hotel, inn, or bed and breakfast in bustling Bar Harbor, which also has restaurants and shops. Quieter Northeast Harbor, which actually sits on the southwest corner of Mt. Desert Island, has a few quaint inns and bed and breakfasts that offer a more rustic experience than staying in Bar Harbor. If you plan to visit Acadia in summer, book your accommodation as far in advance as possible.
