Acadia Mountain Trail

Acadia Mountain Trail

The high point of Mount Desert Island’s western half, 681-foot Acadia Mountain looks out over the blue inlet of Somes Sound, often misidentified as a fjord, but not without resemblance to Scandanavia’s dramatic flooded valleys. Set aside four hours for the sometimes steep loop that also passes over nearby St. Sauveur Mountain.
