Itinerary

Day 1Great Head

Guides will meet you at the Ocean Gateway Visitors Center on the Portland waterfront for the start of the tour.  Today’s hike is Great Head, once home to the mansions of the super wealthy, the area burned during the fire of 1947. After the fire, the owners donated the land to the park and rebuilt their homes in Seal Cove. Because of the fire, the area is dominated by birch trees, not pines, which cover most of the park.

Day 2The Rugged Beauty of the Schoodic Peninsula

Today, you enjoy a unique ferry ride across Frenchman Bay to Winter Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula. You will experience the dramatic power of the open ocean as it crashes along the Schoodic’s rugged shore. Today’s hike is Buck Cove Mountain; the trail will pass through forests and some high bush blueberry fields before climbing to the summit of Schoodic Head.  From here, it is to see why the early explorers named the area Mount Desert.

Your walk along the Carriage Roads leads you to Jordan Pond House, a great stop for a snack. The loop around Jordan Pond offers great views of the bubbles. which the ambitious can hike

Day 4Cadillac Mountain

The tallest mountain on the eastern seaboard between Maine and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Cadillac is also the first place in the United States to see the sunrise.
