You can drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain (Acadia National Park) — in fact, it’s one of the things you must do when visiting the park!
Just make sure you have a reservation that allows you to drive to the top — this is a new system that Acadia put in place when Cadillac Mountain was getting overwhelmed by visitors. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean your trip is ruined — in fact, it might make your drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain more enjoyable… as long as you remember to get that reservation from the park’s website!
At the top of Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park can be seen in all its glory. Acres of colorful, vibrant, changing autumn leaves plus miles of clear blue ocean — what could be better? Well… one thing could make the whole view more amazing: sunrise! If you can drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain in time for sunrise, you won’t be disappointed.
As you drive, make sure you listen to the Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, and autumn leaf stories on this self-guided driving tour. It’ll help you get the most from your drive up!
