Situated along the coast of Maine, approximately midway between New Hampshire and New Brunswick, Canada, Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre recreation area set primarily on Maine's Mount Desert Island. The park features pristine stretches of untouched wilderness characterised by woodland, lakes, rocky beaches and glacier-scoured granite peaks including Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the United States’ East Coast. These diverse habitats combine to form some striking scenery and a haven for an astonishing range of wildlife including moose, bears, whales and seabirds. Hiking and biking are popular activities with over 200 km of hiking trails to explore by foot and 70 km of carriage roads to travel by bike or on horseback. There are also a number of towns and villages to explore on and off the island such as Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Ellsworth, and more.
