Acadia Mountain and St. Sauveur Loop
Escape Acadia National Park's crowded eastern portion and head to Acadia Mountain and St. Sauveur. These two mountains provide wonderful views of Somes Sound, the only fjord on the East coast of the United States.
The full loop is 3.9 miles. You can cut this distance almost in half by just completing one of the peaks as an out-and-back hike.
Destination Distance From Downtown
A steep descent down Acadia Mountain as well as a steep ascent up St. Sauveur add a little bit of a challenge to this 3.9-mile loop.
Time To Complete
You will want to stop at the overlooks to soak in the beauty of Somes Sound and the eastern portion of Mount Desert Island.
Summer and Fall
This hike is best completed when Acadia isn't frozen over in the winter and early spring.
On Leash Only
You will need to purchase a pass for Acadia National Park. A week pass is $25 for a non-commercial motor vehicle, and a seasonal pass is $50.
