Schoodic Head is the highest point in Acadia
National Park on the Schoodic
Peninsula in Maine. At 440 feet, it provides spectacular views
of the trees on the peninsula, Frenchman Bay and its islands, and
of course, the majestic Mount Desert Island including Cadillac
As you approach West Pond Cove while
driving south on the Park road, you will note a single lane dirt and
gravel road on the left. This winds up the slope until it reaches the
summit of Schoodic Head. If you drive, please drive slowly and watch
for other vehicles and people hiking or biking along the road.
The commanding view from Schoodic Head is well worth the trek. On
a good weather day, this can be a very peaceful setting with no park
amenities or services provided.
