Isle au Haut

Isle au Haut

The town center on Isle au Haut shuts down in winter, and there’s not much there in summer besides a general store and curio shop. But that’s not what attracts visitors to this hilly island six miles south of Stonington — they come for craggy beaches and twenty-ish miles of forested trails in the rarely visited unit of Acadia National Park that makes up half the island.
