Stunning views and plenty of places to pull over to enjoy the view and take pictures. We love Sand Beach and the waterfalls along the roadside if it has rained recently.

What an amazing drive. The scenary is spectacular and abundant. Many hiking trails and if you don't want to hike there is plenty of parking at the scenic view turn outs. This drive is a must in this area!

We did the park loop road directly after watching sunrise at Cadillac Mountain, we still made it to Jordan Pond House before it opened, in my opinion this is the absolute best time to go. Toward the end of the trip, traffic started to pick up, at the beginning of the ride we had Acadia to ourselves. Had plenty of... More

Acadia national park has a very high visitor rate. if you want to enjoy the loop road, Go early or late. Then you'll be more alone and will be able to truly see the beauty of the park.

The Park Loop Road is beautifully narrated and described in the CD that can be purchased at the Visitor's Center. Normally I recommend purchasing the Travel Brains CD, but the inexpensive/simple looking CD has quite a bit of information and a great map. The road is beautiful to drive anytime of day. We drove it a couple of times to... More

We've traveled all over the United States, and are so lucky that we live close enough to Acadia National Park that we can visit every year or two. The Park Loop Road is one of those roads that you will never forget driving. The views are so beautiful. It seems that at every turn, you are "oohing and ahhing" at... More

Next to the 17 Mile Drive starting in Carmel-By-The-Sea, this may be by second most enjoyable drive ever. I know, as my wife reminds me, I've said that about other drives too. But this is one of my favorites. You can take the park bus or drive on your own. We drove on our own and I think that gives... More

We drove the Park Loop Road several times while staying with my grandson at Schoodic Head. The most magnificent experience was stopping at the Point at night to view the night sky. The stars were extraordinary, clearly visible without any earthly lights to distract.

Interesting road. We saw fishermen and their catch, and of course, the gorgeous rocky seacoast! A Must see in Acadia.
