You are invited to dress in comfortable SCA garb and hike the Ampetheater carriage road in Acadia National Park. It is on the way to Northeast Harbor with easier parking, two spectacular bridges and stunning views.
For those coming onto the island from the mainland bear right at the head of the island onto Route 202 as if you were headed to Southwest Harbor. When you get to the light in Somesville take a left onto Route 198. Follow that down towards Northeast Harbor. Just after you pass Upper Hadlock Pond on your left (it’s the only visible pond) the lower parking lot will be on the left. If you pass the gatehouse you will have gone too far. The Ampitheater Loop is the one outlined in light green on this map provided by Bangor Daily News.
