Trip Planner: USA / Maine / DownEast and Acadia Maine / Mount Desert Island / Acadia National Park / Cadillac Mountain
Perched upon Mount Desert Island in one of Maine's most popular parks, Cadillac Mountain is replete with hiking trails and scenery. The mountain, standing 470 m (1,528 ft) high, is one of the tallest on the United States' eastern seaboard. Here, you can get a glimpse of distant Canadian Nova Scotia in clear weather. You can either hike or drive the 5.6 km (3.5 mi) long road to the summit, which features views of the Porcupine Islands and ocean. Multiple viewing points and pullout spots are available along the way. Be sure to keep your eyes open for the park's signature granite slabs and rock formations rising from the ground.

Cadillac mountain is the highlight of Acadia. You must have reservations to drive your car up. We booked a time that would allow us to stay for sunset and were able to book reservation for sunrise... more »
Do not miss the views from the top of Cadillac Mountain! What an awesome panoramic vista! Be sure to get your reservation beforehand. Be sure to get a Park Pass. Easy trials to top from parking... more »
Well worth the drive up.
Beautiful sunset. Always the same yet always different with colors of the ocean, sky and vegetation in constant change.
