Cadillac Mountain Road, Maine

(Scenic Drives of America Feature)

A short but sweet ride up to the highest point on the East Coast.

Photo from the end of Cadillac Mountain Road, Maine It may be only about 3 1/2 miles long, and it may be closed for one-third of the year, but Cadillac Mountain Road is one road that drivers will remember for a long time. From its start at the Park Loop Road just outside of Bar Harbor to its end at the top of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point along the Atlantic Coast of the United States, Cadillac Mountain Road is consists of one jawdropping view after another.

Photo of Cadillac Mountain Road, Maine The bottom of Cadillac Mountain Road winds mostly through a beautiful pine forest, but it soon emerges from the trees, affording views of Bar Harbor to the north and most of Mount Desert Island to the west and south. Once at the top of the mountain, the road turns into a parking area where there is a gift shop, a short walking loop, and views from nearly every direction, making for great sunrise and sunset viewings.
