There are no bad eyesights in Acadia National Park.
With over 120 miles of hiking trails and 26 mountains to climb in the park, there are countless places to soak up the views of Mount Desert Island, the Atlantic Ocean, and the surrounding Maine coastline.
And you don’t even have to go in the summer to get the best views. In fact, sometimes bare trees in winter give way to spectacular sights that you might have otherwise missed.
