Cadillac Mountain Reviews & Ratings

  • Watched the Hunter’s Full moon come up beautiful!

  • Cadillac Mountain offers great views. You can either hike or drive to the summit. I recommend hiking to the summit to see the sunrise. It's one of the first places in the USA that you can see the sun rise. Do your research but I felt like the hike was relatively easy.

  • One of the best spots in Acadia National Park. You can drive up to the summit if you want or you can hike it as well. We went up through the North Ridge trail head and got to see some spectacular views. The view at the top is beautiful. This would be probably your best spot to see the sunrise as well (you just need to be lucky to avoid clouds). Great experience!!

  • Very scenic and high drive to the top. Many places to pull over and look out. There are several places you can hike around on the rocks or just sit and enjoy the beautiful views.

  • Amazing views and convenient parking. Get there at least 30 min before sunrise to guarantee a spot. I visited in September and it was rather chilly so bring warm clothes.
