Cadillac Mountain


Cadillac Mountain

Route 3, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, ME

Located within the heart of Acadia National Park, Cadillac Mountain is the highest point along the Eastern seaboard and the first place where the sun rises in the United States each morning from October through March. An auto road rises through a series of switchbacks to a parking lot near the top, from which you can take a short walk up to the 1,532-foot summit. Or if you̢۪d prefer to get to the top under your own power, the North Ridge Trail is a 4-mile moderate hike with some great views of Frenchman̢۪s Bay, while the South Ridge is a longer, more strenuous hike up some steep rocky grades. Whatever way you choose, you̢۪ll be rewarded with stunning views of the Maine coast and islands far, far below.
