Acadia National Park
Acadia's 33,000 acres of woodland, mountains, lakes, and shorefront surround Bar Harbor. More that 60 trails and mountains as as high as 1500 feet offer activities ranging from gentle to strenuous. We have listed below just a few activities that await you.
Climbing “Up-down and around”. Here are some of my favorite trails- We love the North Ridge trail on Champlain Mt. (formerly called Bear Brook Trail). There's a vernal pool of water in the rocks that looks as though it was designed by a Japanese master gardener.
We like going up the Beechcroft Trail on Huguenot Head and then up Champlain and back down by the North Ridge trail. Another favorite: take the Bald Peak trail just above Hadlock Pond on Rte 198 and quickly turn left on to Parkman Mountain Trail. There's a lot of choices here, go to the waterfall bridge on the way (if it's been raining) and at the top of Parkman, a right turn will take you to the Sargent Mountain Complex, or a left turn will take you down to the carriage road and back to your car.
