The Acadia National Park encompasses 60 square miles (155 sq km) of rugged coastline, forest, granite peaks, lakes and plenty of wildlife. Roughly four million visitors flock here each year to drink in the beauty of the park, hike up Mount Cadillac, spot wildlife, or enjoy a ranger-led programme.

Summer is a popular time to visit for hiking, mountain biking, boating, birdwatching, fishing, and horseback riding. Winter offers cross-country skiing, ice fishing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and snow-shoeing, although several roads close for safety due to snow. Of course, autumn is a spectacle of colour. Acadia National Park remains one of the most visited parks in the United States.
