Covering 47,000 acres of land on Isle au Haut, Mount Desert Island, and the Schoodic Peninsula in DownEast Acadia, Maine, Acadia National Park is the only Maine national park. It was established to protect the magnificent nature of the rocky headlands along the Atlantic Ocean coastline, a range of habitats with high biodiversity, clean water and air, and Maine’s rich cultural heritage. The park has seven peaks higher than 1,000 feet, 45 miles of roads, 158 miles of hiking trails, and 16 stone bridges. The park’s dense woodland, rocky beaches, and glacier-formed granite peaks are home to rich wildlife such as bear, moose, whales, foxes, peregrine falcons, salamanders, and many seabirds. The charming coastal town of Bar Harbor is located within the park. Thousands of people visit the park every year, coming to enjoy the magical landscapes and endless recreation opportunities.
