Itinerary

Day 1Port Clyde to Rockland

We meet at the Ocean Gateway Visitor Center at 8 am for the transfer to the Marshall Point Lighthouse just outside of Port Clyde. Today’s ride will take you through the charming fishing village of Port Clyde, past a hidden cove, and to the Owl’s Head Light. After visiting Owl’s Head, it is an easy pedal to Rockland and your inn for the evening. 

Day 2Rockland to Camden

Leaving Rockland, you enjoy cycling country roads towards Camden. You will visit Rockport Harbor, home of Andre the Seal, cycle Beachamp Point for ocean views, and visit Aldemere Farms, home of the “Oreo Cookie” Cows. A short hike leads to great views of Curtis Island Light before cycling through Camden and along the shore of Lake Megunticook. In the evening, you sail Penobscot Bay on a wooden schooner.

Day 3Camden to Belfast

The rolling hills of Camden offer miles of riding on quiet country roads. Follow these roads through the summer community of Bayside and into the coastal town of Belfast. A little artsier than Camden, Belfast is a great place to enjoy the waterfront and get to know some local artists. In the afternoon, we shuttle to Acadia National Park.

Day 4Acadia's Carriage Roads

Picture breathtaking scenery, gentle grades, and car-free cycling, and you have Acadia’s famous carriage roads. A gift of John D. Rockefeller to help the people of America enjoy Acadia’s beauty, the carriage roads offer the opportunity to cycle through stately forests of pine and birch and to enjoy panoramic views of Mount Desert Island.
