A Walk in the Park: Ocean Trail Hike
Discover the spectacular natural beauty and fascinating history of one of the most gorgeous islands in America. As waves crash against granite, you’ll learn about the powerful glacial activity that gave the Maine coast its unique identity, the variety of wildlife that abounds, and the flora and fauna that make Mount Desert Island such a paradise. A walk along the rockbound coast provides the perfect setting for your guide/naturalist to introduce you to all the wonders of Acadia National Park. Learn the role that barons such as John D. Rockefeller played in forming the park. You'll also learn about the fishing industry and the Golden Age of Bar Harbor, when Mount Desert Island was the playground of America's fabulously wealthy.
Up to two hours of walking may be required. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
