Hulls Cove, which is actually part of
the Mount Desert Island town of Bar Harbor, Maine, is a very nice cove providing an easterly view of
the ocean along Route 3. There are several places to stay and a fine
restaurant right next to the water.
You may want to begin your exploration of Acadia National Park at the nearby Hulls Cove
Visitor Center just off Maine Route 3. The entrance is a short distance
on the right after the Hulls Cove inlet. The famous Carriage
Roads may be accessed from this location. And, for those wishing
to leave the driving to someone else, the Island
Explorer Shuttle Bus makes regular stops at the main parking lot.
The Hulls Cove Visitor Center is open seasonally at different hours and closed November 1 through mid-April. For information during the
winter months, visit the Park Headquarters on
Highway 233 near Eagle Lake, 3 miles
west of Bar Harbor.
