Acadia National Park is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in New England to visit for fall. With a charming downtown area, tons of incredible hiking trails to choose from, beautiful landscapes – and yes, all the drool-worthy lobster rolls you could ever dream of, a trip to Acadia National Park in fall is a dream come true.
The Beehive Loop Trail is by far one of the most popular and memorable hikes to do in Acadia National Park especially in fall.
Precipice Loop Trail is very similar to the Beehive Trail, just a more challenging version of it. The Beehive Trail is located only 500 feet up the mountain while the Precipice Trail is located 1000 feet up.
Sitting at 1530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is the highest point on the East Coast of the United States. This mountain is located within Acadia National Park and is a major attraction for most park visitors. You can access Cadillac Mountain via 3.5 miles long Cadillac Summit Road which goes directly to the top.
If you’re short on time (or just not up for hiking), you can still enjoy the scenery of Acadia National Park from the comfort of your car. Acadia’s Park Loop Road follows 27 miles on a paved highway passing some of the best attractions in the park.
Jordan Pond is one of the most stunning places to visit in Acadia National Park, especially at sunset for photography.
