First off the parking lot is a total disaster. Almost ruins it. However the lake and trails are completely beautiful. I was here as the leaves were changing. It was really beautiful.

One of the most beautiful views that I have ever seen. I wish that I had time to hike the whole trail but I was glad that I was able to see this. It's so beautiful that it's hard to believe that it is real.

Jordan Pond is a beautiful setting. There is a 3.3'ish mile hike around the perimeter of the pond that takes you through three different terrains: elevated boardwalk, boulders, and crushed gravel path. Give yourself 2-3 hours to complete the hike. The scenery remains gorgeous throughout...More

Another beautiful spot in Acadia national park, a short walk down to the huge lake, a little tricky but great results once you get down to the waterfront. Made by glaciers and surrounded by granite mountains. Bathrooms and gift shop onsite. Make sure you cross...More

We stopped to take some photos and were there on a beautiful day that didn't disappoint. Acadia is a great place to drive through and stop and take pics. I'm sure the hiking is great, too!
