Always a pleasure  Sucess!

Repeatedly. One of the great things about Acadia is the scale of the place -- it's easy enough to hike right across MDI's tops in a single day. Always a joy -- such lovely rock...

Another NP Highpoint  Sucess!

I had wanted to visit Acadia National Park for many years; I wanted to see what all of the hype was about. I still do not know what all of the hype was about, but I was able to make this side-trip to the highpoint of the park (as well as the county). It was a short hike to the possible contenders. I also visited the nearby gift shop and more-popular lower hill which definitely has better views.

Sunrise on the Atlantic, Sunset on the Atlantic  Sucess!

Took a little sidetrip to Acadia after hiking the "100-mile Wilderness." Spent a couple days hiking around the area and trying to avoid the burgeoning masses of windshield tourists that plagued the island. What an amazing area. Love the rounded, pink granite boulders surrounding the island. Great trip with an awesome sunset and subsequent sunrise on Cadillac.

Sunrise  Sucess!

We were in Acadia, we figured it was mandatory.

Beautiful  Sucess!

I have been several times but took my kids up this most recent time. They had a blast. Love the view from the top of Cadillac. Absolutely beautiful.

Tough Drive!  Sucess!

Heading back down to Massachusetts from Katahdin, we took the scenic route.

All said, it took roughly 18 hours to get from Maine's highest point the the Atlantic coast's highest point.

What a weekend.

Tough drive up on a beautiful fall day.

The Easy Route

A fun drive and ramble to the top with my wife. It's easy to escape the crowds, they don't go far from the parking lot.

Maybe Not the Smartest Thing I've Done  Sucess!

Look at that date. If you're looking for solitude, maybe hitting a popular tourist destination like Bar Harbor, Maine isn't the smartest thing to do on the fourth of July. Throw in near-record breaking heat and the only sand beach around (within the park boundaries), and you have a prescription for huge crowds. Regardless, we hiked very early in the morning and didn't see anyone until near the summit. The hike back down was crowded, even for the tough trail we selected (Cadillac West Face). --mark d.

first hike in acadia  Sucess!

beautiful hike, though i didn't realize there was a road to the top until nearly at the summit.

sunrise  Sucess!

I was the first person in our glorious country to feel the beautiful sun on my face this day. One of the most beautiful things iv seen in my life.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up and back on the North Ridge trail. Fog and light rain completely obscured the summit view. It was still a nice hike with beautiful fall colors.

Nice Sunset  Sucess!

A great family outing, a nice place to catch the sunset.

2001 Trip  Sucess!

Couldn't see a thing, rained the entire time in the park. My wife did find a shirt on the beach she still wears today, 8 years later.

Range traverse  Sucess!

After failing to climb Cadillac as a kid (accidentally did Pemetic instead), I was eager to give this one a shot on vacation.

My younger cousin and I got dropped off by Hadlock Pond and proceeded over Bald Peak, Sargent, Penobscot, S. Bubble, Pemetic and Cadillac in beautiful weather, ending on the summit where we got picked up. Took about 7 hours--my cousin slowed down a bit toward the end, but did pretty well for his first real hike.

Now I have to come back to try the Precipice! (it was closed while I was there)

Blueberries!  Sucess!

A fun hike up with lots of options for stringing the various trails together to make a day of it.

Empty parking lot!  Sucess!

Did a loop...up Dorr via Ladder, down to the gorge, up Cadallic, down to bubble pond, up Pemetic, down to the pond trail to the cannon brook trail...back to the car. AWESOME day...especially the empty parking lot on Cadillac :)
