When researching some of the more “un-seen” places in Acadia National Park I stumbled upon Shoodic Point. It’s the only part of Acadia National Park that is located on the mainland (which makes it harder to get to as it’s about 45 minutes/1 hour away from Bar Harbor.
On one of our more quiet days we took the drive out to Schoodic to see all the pretty paths and cliff areas. It was incredibly quiet, we only saw a few tourists (compared to SO MANY tourists at the main area of the park) which made walking around so serene.
There isn’t really much to say about what all this area of the park has to offer other than nice hikes, beautiful scenery, and a more quiet approach to Acadia. Would I go back and visit this area? HANDS DOWN YES! I would love to really explore the area more as well as come prepared with a picnic lunch and a book or two.
What are some of your favorite off-the-beaten-path locations to visit?
I would love to add them to my travel list!
