    This was our first hike in Acadia and worth it. We took the Cadillac Cliffs trail off of Groham for extra fun. The views from the top are fantastic and our 5 year old completed the hike without diffic...  more »

    We did this mountain by South (dedicated parking) and North (Sand Beach parking, combined to Beehive and Bowl) with our boy. It's steep enough and with the challenge to maintain his interest, without being too high to exhaust it. The combination with Bowl and Beehive (in reverse, we had no desire of scales) is very interesting, Lake Bowl is beautiful and withdrawn. However to do this side early, because on our way back to 10.30 we're caught in the horde that wants to do/see steep Beehive.

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.
