Such a beautiful spot, despite a rainy fall day. Easy, extremely well maintained trail, with some stairs and wooden walkways along the way. Perfect for kids and families to take a short walk and share a picnic along the Union River. There are some elevation changes, but nothing too strenuous. Trial is well marked. Enjoy!

Small, uncrowded, well maintained day park with great views of Mount Desert Island. A nature trail and a clean sandy beach. Lots of picnic tables and lawn for frisbee, kickball, or other yard games above the beach. Convenient and easy sea kayak or canoe launching next to a new boat ramp and dock where fishing for Atlantic Mackerel is popular. A large play ground and volleyball court. Pet friendly. The park has facilities for primitive or RV camping but the campers do not impose on the beach and dock areas. The harbor has guests moorings and is used by working lobsterman and pleasure boaters.

Pretty views of Cadillac Mountain across the water, but why is it $6 to park? It's a tiny park with a parking lot and that's about it...
