I have been lucky to hit up several of our national parks over the years but this one was especially a long time coming given its remoteness and the extra effort it takes to make your way to Acadia. I have had visions of the craggy shorelines, lighthouses, lobster shacks in Bar Harbor and lush green setting. We rented bikes in Bar Harbor and biked our way into the park to follow the carriage trails once built by Rockefeller. There are dozens of miles of car less, gravel carriage roads that weave their way through the park and make for a fun and active way to see the lakes, mountains, etc. Our visit included a halfway stop to the Jordan Pond House for the famous popovers and strawberry jam along with blueberry tea.
