Baxter Park here! Wanted to share some advice since the description of this drive is not very accurate. First of all, the road that goes between the North and South gate of Baxter State Park is called the Tote Road. The Tote Road is narrow, windy and contains pot holes. We ask all drivers to adhere to the strict 20 mph speed limit for your safety and the safety of our wildlife. Please note that the description posted here says that dogs on leash are allowed which is not true. Pets are not allowed in the Park (no, not even if you promise to keep Fido in the car the whole time). There is no cell phone service, gas stations, gift shops etc. along the road. It takes 2 hours to drive the full length. The road is open to snow sledding, skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. The Tote Road was not designed as a scenic drive and you will not get overlooks with sweeping views of Katahdin. It is a road that gives visitors access to our many trail heads. We hope that visitors will take the time to get out of their car and enjoy the sights from a trail! (Giving our road 4 stars because it is beautiful but the description posted here is highly inaccurate.)

Beautiful! Crowded in the summer but late fall is perfect!

We did this trail in August 2018. It was pretty and we didn’t see any other people during our outing. The mosquitoes were horrendous (swampy/boggy so not surprising). A few of the bog bridges were swamped and we got pretty wet crossing them. Puncheon bridges would probably be helpful in those areas as I suspect it’s frequently pretty wet in those areas. The terrain is flat and much of the walking surface is on bog bridges. It’s a quiet, pretty walk that is very easy and would be family-friendly.

Lots of mud and a ridiculous amount of mosquitos. My family and I literally ran out of there getting chased by swarms of mosquitos. Trail extremely over grown.

There are many trails and paths along Park Loop, as well as Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, that you can either walk, hike, bike, or drive along. During winter months, most of the roads are closed, but there are a few areas that can be found to gain access to Sand Beach, etc.

Acadia's Park Loop Road is the perfect introduction to this 47,000 acre park. Much of it is one-way traffic.

This is a road biker paradise.. Parked @Sand Beach lot... Began the 22 mile loop there @8am... It has it all, scenery, well paved roads, some challenging hills... About 17 miles of the loop is a 2 lane one way traffic so plenty of room to bike...you also have the option of adding Cadillac mountain summit (extra 5.5 miles), very challenging, all uphill and the downhill can be treacherous, too many tight turns and you'll be slamming on your brakes all the way down with a huge intersection at the bottom.... All said, at least the loop is a must.

very easy. great scenery.

We did not hike the entire 24.5 miles, but this is as majestic a place as any.

Excellent way to see a lot of Acadia if hiking isn't your thing or if you don't have time to do a ton of hikes. The roads are in good condition with lots of pull offs/signage for areas of interest/scenic areas. On tip: if you enter the park of SR 3 north of Bar Harbor you should do the loop clockwise. If you go counter clockwise you have to backtrack; as over 1/2 the loop is 1 way.

A nice little park with a fun jaunt along planks through grasses, woods, and swamp. Be careful, it is easy to get your feet wet. Beaver activity has flooded some of the trails. Easily did the walk with my dog, but he certainly got his paws muddied. I was nagged by bugs and did the trail at a fast pass to get away from them.

This is a nice walk through swamp and bog. Be aware that the water levels can be high enough to make the boards float, which means they sink when you step on them. Lots of Mother Nature going on here to see.

We drove into Millinockett, Maine from Brunswick. Early in the morning you have the road all to yourself and the highway is wide and straight. We were pretty much focused on Mt. Katahdin, as we were doing an up and over the next day. But Millinockett is a nice town, very welcoming. Didn't take many pictures until we got to the mountain, stopped by the ranger cabin and walked down to the lake to view what was ahead of us. Ate a good home-cooked meal at one of the local restaurants. Hardly slept that night knowing we had a great day ahead. Recommend a one night stay just to take in the area in Baxter State Park and do as much hiking as you want.

Snowmobiled the park loop and went up Mt. Cadillac. Watched the sun go down over the West side. There are many ooos and ahhh around every corner but few words to capture the exquisite beauty and ruggedness of Acadia. Acadia is a jewel!

Only had 1.5 days at the park. This was a great way to see many awesome views and parts of the park. If you don't have a ton of time, I'd recommend at least one hike in addition to this.

Very easy walking path. Nice stops along the way. Very crowded.

Been to most of the national parks in the USA. Not that impressed but if it makes you feel better I did buy a hat

While Acadia park itself is beatiful, the loop trail is mostly just a 2 lane road with some viewpoints and trailheads. I made the mistake of walking most of it, which I do not recommend. Driving around the loop or cycling is the way to go and then branch off to explore the different trails that come off of the road.

Take a half day for this. Have driven around this loop several times, as each time gives you something new; also depending on the time of day you'll find something new. It's basically one way in a clockwise direction... some highlights include the Precipice Trail - not for those scared of heights and exposure on cliffs - but for those who can do it, it is an accomplishment to get to the top. Next you come to the Sand Beach entrance station, and the Sand Beech / Beehive area. Lots to do and see here, so spend some time. You can walk across Sand Beach and up to Great Head, you can swim if you are ok with cold water, you can climb the Beehive from the front or back. Further down the road is Thunder Hole, you can explore the rocks on either side. Sometimes the Hole is quiet and others it really thunders. Next is the Gorham Mountain Trailhead - a really great short hike - don't miss it. Next are the Otter Cliffs - hike down and look over the edge, watch folks rappel down the cliffs. Great views out to sea from the stone walk area across from the parking area. Stop at the beautiful Little Hunters Beach to see the round rock tumbled by the sea into smooth stones. More hiking opportunities after that, and then join the two way road and go north to Jordan Pond. I recommend the hike to South Bubble as the view is great on top; however the trail will be crowded mid-day, so try early or late. Finally either start your day or finish your day at the top of Cadillac Mountain; the sun is awesome on both ends and it's a great place to reflect about either what you're going to do that day or what you've done. Maine is an awesome place and Acadia gives you a true taste. Enjoy!

This drive is best in early October. If you can't do October, come in July or August. There is beauty everywhere and lots of oportunites for hiking, biking and more.

Beautiful mountains, forrests, wildlife and the AT crosses. I have backpacked this part of the AT and it is a beautiful but demanding section.
