About Acadia National Park

Early supporters of Acadia National Park donated land to preserve and protect the diverse landscape of the rugged Maine coast. Established in 1916, the park features tide pools, wetlands, boreal forests, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. Today, visitors come to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, enjoy freshwater and saltwater activities — and take in the spectacular scenery.
