This is a must do for us when we are anywhere near Acadia. It's a bit daunting your first time not knowing what the roads will be like on your way to the top but I assure you that they are paved and well maintained. The granite boulders on the side of the road give you an extra feeling of safety.Once at the top you will be rewarded with the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Mt. Desert Island. It seems to go on forever. Take your time and soak it all in. Bring a picnic lunch and something to drink. Or better yet, go for the spectacular sunrise. Be prepared for the crowd. Lots of people assemble at the peak and surrounding area. Sunset is spectacular when the conditions are right. It’s a trade off- if you prefer staying off the beaten path- this may not be your best choice.
