  • In this forgotten part of Acadia National Park Schoodic Point offers magnificent points of view: a jagged coast, in pink granite, in close Mount Desert Island. At low tide, it's can be a bit too "quiet" to shout "ouaahou"...

  • Beautiful area. It's just a few miles from the main part of Acadia, but far less visitors. Great area for a picnic. Beautiful drive.
  • No visit to Acadia National Park would be complete without taking the time to visit this place. The coastal beauty is on full display from the one-way road that skirts the shore for miles. Plenty of pull off areas for pictures and just soaking in the sights, sounds, and smells of being this close to the ocean. Bring a picnic and just relax.
  • When in Maine this place is the place to visit for wave crash viewing! While Thunder Hole is pretty cool, this place has a number cliff face rocks for the waves to crash up against. Its like having 40 Thunder Holes. While over in this area make sure to stop off at the Pickled Wrinkle for lunch.
  • Nice vista and a great place to set a chair and hang out. A peaceful and relaxing location.
  • A great outing while visiting Acadia National Park. Not many people venture down here, but it's well worth the ride. FYI - the Park office was already closed when we visited Columbus Day weekend.
