CAUTION: This is NOT a trip report!!

Most free information or "itineraries" you will find floating around are just someone's trip report -- what they did the ONE time they went to Acadia.


This itinerary is completely DIFFERENT. Here's why:

  •  It's a compilation of MULTIPLE TRIPS and HUNDREDS OF HOURS spent in the park, leaving you with the best information possible


  •  It takes into account the TIME of day, the CROWDS, the TRAFFIC, and the individual QUIRKS of the park when planning out your time


  •  You'll avoid the ROOKIE MISTAKES most people make because I've already been there, done that, and learned how to NOT do it that way again


  •  It's written by me, Ash! I actually WORKED AS A PARK RANGER :)  


Why spend hours researching and planning when I've already done the hard work for you?


Jordan Pond || Acadia National Park || Dirt In My Shoes

With this itinerary, you will learn things like...

*** Which activities are BEST to do, even if you're short on time

 

*** My absolute favorite places to go to avoid those notorious Acadia crowds

 

*** How to find parking and avoid pesky traffic jams

 

...and more!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this itinerary a good fit for me?

If you're hoping to see the main sights, get off-the-beaten path, and hit some fabulous shorter hiking trails, then YES!  

All activities included are family-friendly and good for explorers of all ages {with the exception of the famous Beehive Trail, which requires hand-holds and ladders to reach the top}.

Acadia Mountain || Acadia National Park || Dirt In My Shoes

I’ve already planned my trip to Acadia. Will this itinerary still be useful to me?

Definitely! Even if you already know what you want to see and do while you are there, it’s still important to factor in the driving time and the crowds. I’ve taken all of that into consideration while writing this itinerary, so you can have confidence that you are seeing the attractions in the BEST and easiest way.

This is not my first trip to Acadia and I don’t plan on seeing the popular spots {such as Cadillac Mountain or Jordan Pond} again. Should I still purchase this itinerary?

This itinerary is designed for those who have either never been to Acadia National Park before or haven’t been back for many years. If you don’t care to stop at the most popular attractions, this itinerary is probably not for you. That being said, if you would really like to delve into some of the park’s longer hiking trails, let me know! I would be happy to provide you with my recommendations.
