  • This was tougher than it seems. Not a big mountain but we combined it with the around the mountain trail, Eagle Lake Loop and Witch Hole Pond loop! Nice views from the summit and a great ride down!!  more »
  • We left the kids back at the rental house for this bike ride to the top and around Day Mountain. It's a good 15-20 minute ride up starting from the west side carraige road intersection, but it provide...  more »
  • I hiked this mountain with my teen sons and our small dog. Nice easy and rewarding hike. One of the carriage roads leads near the summit so it is possible to ride bikes most of the way up.  more »

  • Beautiful underrated peak in Acadia. Perfect for amateur bikers to scale on the carriage road. Flying back down the mountain at 45 mph was an adrenaline rush.
  • Great bike ride to the summit.

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.
