Down East Maine's Schoodic Peninsula, the only part of Acadia National Park located on the mainland, is shared by the towns of Gouldsboro and Winter Harbor. To the South is the Schoodic Peninsula section of the park providing panoramic views of Frenchman Bay from atop the 440 foot high Schoodic Head. Schoodic Point, at the southern tip of the peninsula, has granite outcroppings, pounding surf, spruce, and unusual groupings of jack pine. Schoodic Peninsula's park road offers great views of the ocean, inlets, and distant Mount Desert Island. There is ample parking space for visitors and it is well worth the trip.
To get to Schoodic Peninsula, go “Down East” about 19 miles from Ellsworth on U.S. Route #1. In West Gouldsboro, take a right and head south on Route #186. Go approximately another 6 miles to a right that leads to the Schoodic Park area. It will turn into a one way park loop road after about a mile.
