Acadia All American Road
Length: 40.0 mi / 64.4 km
Time to Allow: Take three hours to drive and see this byway.
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.
With the pounding surfs and heavy rains so characteristic of “nor'easter” storms, along with an average annual snowfall of 61 inches, the casual traveler might not first consider Acadia National Park for a winter recreation destination. But those who look past Mother Nature’s antics will discover some of winter's best-kept secrets along the enchanted lanes of the Acadia All American Road in Maine.
Let Acadia All American Road lure you in with its varied landscape and plentiful wildlife. During springtime, birding on the byway is exceptional, so plan a trip and spend some time in the sun as you keep a look out for birds.
