Acadia All American Road

Department of Transportation.

From craggy shorelines and granite-capped mountains to crystal lakes and spruce–fir forests, Acadia All American Road is perfect for exploring. Extensive carriage roads and hiking trails give access to Acadia National Park. See fishing and sailboats in Frenchman's Bay or go back in time to see the "cottages" of old Bar Harbor.
