Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island in Maine is the place for family adventures, and this new guide is filled with easy ways to make them happen. An Outdoor Family Guide to Acadia National Park shows families how to take advantage of the 57 miles of carriage roads ideal for biking and strolling; easy ocean and shore access; inland lakes and coastlines ideal for kayaking and canoeing; a variety of historical, cultural, and natural attractions; and extraordinary interpretive programs.

The 35 family-friendly outings described here direct families to historic landmarks as well as animals, plants, and other natural features that might otherwise be missed. Trips are organized by type of activity (hiking, biking, or paddling) and geographic region. Each description includes information on a trip's level of difficulty as well as length, starting elevation, high point, and best season. A Trip Finder appendix is included to help you quickly choose an outing that fits your needs.

Author Lisa Gollin Evans gives us expert tips on hiking, biking, and paddling with children; park regulations; essential equipment; and much more.
