Acadia National Park: Schoodic Bike Paths

Ride Description

The Schoodic Bike Paths feature 8.3 miles of wide, fine gravel paths. While some sections are difficult for all but the seasoned biker, the perfectly maintained pathways and stunning views make up for the challenge. Large rocks along the trail side add charm to many sections and there are frequent pull-offs to rock benches that are great for a rest or a snack.

The path stretches in a network from just south of ME-186 all the way to Schoodic Harbor. The network of trails leads to Frazer Point, Wonsqueak Harbor, Bunker Harbor, climbs up Birch Harbor Mountain, and descends to Winter Harbor. The well-marked bike paths can be connected to create rides of differing lengths.

The Schoodic Bike Paths are also open to pedestrians, and to snowshoers and cross-country skiers in winter when the trails are ungroomed.
